In an initiative to help ferry Polish war heroes who saved Jews from being murdered during the Holocaust, three taxi garage owners have donated a number of Black taxis.
Farley Freedman, Asher Moses and Howard Kott have provided two vehicles to an organisation called From The Depths, a Polish Holocaust memorial organisation.
The vehicles will be used to transport the elderly heroes around cities in Poland, who struggle with their mobility.
20% of the Polish population were killed during World War II with 50% of that number made up of Polish Jews. In total 3,000,000 Jews were murdered, today there are approximately 3,500 Jews left in Poland.
From The Depths founder Jonny Daniels had a chance meeting with Farley Freedman, and from there the idea was spawned.
Despite Mr Daniels offering to purchase the taxis, which were coming to the end of their working life in London, Freedman, Moses and Kott opted to donate the taxis.
