3PB supports free cab rides to vaccination centres in Winchester
11th February 2021
3PB Barristers (3 Paper Buildings) is supporting the ‘Winchester Cabs for Jabs’ initiative which has been organised by a group of local friends to enable eligible people to travel to vaccination centres without incurring fees for taxis, or having to navigate public transport.
With the help of local Winchester taxi firms, the scheme is giving old and vulnerable people the option of being picked up from home and returned safely after their vaccination. Organisers are trying to fund around 1,000 free cab rides and said: “We hope this will take a little bit of the stress out of the day knowing that a taxi will already be paid for getting them to and from the vaccination centre safely.”
3PB Chambers Director Stuart Pringle said : “This is an important new local scheme in this pandemic and 3PB are very happy to support Winchester Cabs for Jabs.”
The initiative has so far enabled over 200 people to travel to and from the vaccination centre and has raised some £15,000 to pay for cab fares. Organisers estimate that another £5,000 will be needed to support the local community.
