ADT Taxis supporting Diabetes UK

ADT Taxis are proud to be helping to raise money for Diabetes UK. Co-owner of ADT Taxis Ashley Butcher was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was just 16 and has learnt how to cope with the condition since.

Ashley says about his condition “it was a shock when I was first diagnosed, and I can appreciate first-hand how difficult it can be for many sufferers to cope with it. The help at hand at both the Leicester Royal and General hospitals has been amazing, and I wanted to do something to say Thank You back for all their help”



ADT Taxis will donate 5p for every journey made in one of their cabs from all booking made via the ADT Taxi App which you can download from the iTunes store or the android marketplace.

With ADT Taxis making over 10,000 journeys each week in our fleet of over 320 Taxis around Leicestershire the total will soon add up we hope, as the donations will come in all summer.

“I also want to raise awareness about the symptoms of Diabetes for people who may not even realise they have the condition” continues Ashley “ we will be putting an information booklet in the back of every Taxi as well during the period, which will help people understand what they need to look out for as the first signs of the condition”
 

This is key to Ashley, as his own daughter when aged just 3 suddenly went lethargic, felt unwell and lost weight very quickly. Ashley spotted the symptoms and rushed Amelie-Rose to the hospital and she also was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and has had to learn to cope with the condition herself, and now aged 7 she is leading an active life.

There are over 660,000 people diagnosed in the Midlands with Diabetes and we are hoping the 5p a journey donation will raise some valuable money, and the leaflets in each taxi will raise awareness.
