Arthur Rank Hospice Charity was delighted to learn the new hospice appeal had been chosen as the partner for their forthcoming social media campaign.
The campaign encourages customers to take a selfie with a Panther Taxi in the background and for each picture taken and shared on the Panther Taxi Cambridge facebook page using the hashtag #PANTHERPIC the company will donate £1 towards the 300,000 Help the Hospice Appeal. The appeal currently sits at £86,719 so this could provide will be a much needed and appreciated boost to help reach the first £100,000.
Donna Talbot, Director of Fundraising and Communications for the charity said: ‘We are delighted to be invited to get involved with this campaign. The team at Panther Taxis are brilliant and appreciate the power of social media. We hope, whether in a taxi for work, a shopping trip or a night out, the people of Cambridgeshire will support this initiative and help us to raise as much as possible for this worthy cause.’
John Raynham of Panther Taxis added: ‘It’s really simple and fun! All you need to do is just take a selfie of you or your friends, or ask someone else to take a photo of you with one of our taxis, its door sign clearly visible, and upload it to our Facebook page for us to approve. Then for every image shared and liked we will pay £1 to Arthur Rank Hospice. We have set a target of £1,500 so we hope the public will get behind this and help us to achieve our goal.’
If you would like to show your support for the new build, you can also text ARHC05 or ARHC10 to 70070 to donate £5 or £10 and help us kick-start this exciting campaign. Every donation allows us to move one step closer to our goal and together we can raise the £10.3 million required for this exciting project.
With a fleet of over 500 vehicles, Panther Taxis are a familiar sight on
Cambridge's roads and like the hospice are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a
week, 365 days a year.
