Annual Worthing Outing for Military Veterans

Since 1948, the Taxi Charity For Military Veterans has organised an annual outing for its veterans to the seaside of Worthing.

Taxis pick up veterans from various parts of London and the suburbs, including the Royal Hospital Chelsea, Headley Court and other military care homes.

They make their way to Surrey where the veterans are treated to homemade sandwiches, cakes and refreshments. Then they set off in convoy for Worthing.

Pavilion Theatre hosts the event which includes a meal and speeches from the Mayor of Worthing and a VIP guest.

The meal and speeches are followed by entertainment for the veterans and their families.

Then it's back to London, stopping if the veterans have the energy for a night cap!
