SUPPORTING a family-run charity is important to Aquac[ars and one of the main reasons they support Blue Day.
The taxi firm has been supporting the annual charity fundraiser since it began in 2008 and they will be backing it again this year.
The drivers and staff will be dressed in blue and have blue ribbons in the vehicles on May 2 in a bid to raise money for the Tom Prince Cancer Trust.
The charity was set up in 2008 by Adele and Clinton Prince in memory of their son Tom.
Dave Campbell, assistant general manager for Aquacars, said: ‘We have always been big supporters of Blue Day because it is a local charity and is family-run.
‘The staff always enjoy dressing in blue and we offer the drivers the chance to put blue ribbons in their cars to show their support.
‘We also have a few keen bakers who make cookies and cakes so it really is a fun day for a great cause.’
The firm has leaflets around the site explaining about Blue Day and why they support it.
Dave added: ‘For us, it is really important that the staff know why we support it.
‘It’s a great charity and I think that is shown by how many local businesses sign up and join in.’
Tom died on the eve of his 16th birthday in 2004 from osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.
The 15-year-old was a big Pompey fan and every year since they reached the FA Cup semi-final, his family has organised Blue Day. This year marks 10years since Tom died.
