Brighton & Hove Albion's Albion as One fund is donating £1000 to the Cabs 4 Jabs scheme running in the city.

Taxi firms across the country, including City Cabs in Brighton & Hove, are providing vital transportation for the elderly and vulnerable so they can get to appointments for their vaccination against the COVID-19 virus.

Albion deputy chairman and chief executive Paul Barber said, “This is a brilliant scheme and just another example of the community coming together to help one another, and we are delighted to be able to help with a donation which will go a long way to helping a lot of people.

“It's a great scheme, and donations will go a long way to assisting some of the most vulnerable people in our communities get their much-needed vaccines, and ultimately helping us keep moving towards a more normal way of daily life.”

City Cabs boss and Albion supporter Andy Cheesman added, “We are transporting the vulnerable, elderly & those with disabilities to the Brighton Racecourse Vaccination Centre in conjunction with the NHS and the charity Possibility People.

“Thanks to Brighton & Hove Albion for the kind donation and helping to raise awareness of the scheme which will be used for those in most need in the community to attend their vaccination appointment.”

Albion supporter Brett Mendoza is backing the scheme and has set up a Go Fund Me page to boost the scheme. Donations to City Cabs 4 Jabs can be made by clicking here.
