Two local taxi drivers will be putting their best paw forward this week in aid of Children In Need.

Kristan Fox and Christopher Garrigan from Rhos both work for Crown Cars and wanted to do their bit to help local children and raise as much as possible for this Friday’s fundraiser.

The pair will be wearing the Pudsey bear costumes throughout their Friday shift and donating every penny that they earn to the charity along with customers donations.

Explaining why they’re holding the fundraiser, Kristian said: “I have children of my own including my beautiful new born baby and as a father I just wanted to give something back and raise as much money as possible for this worth while cause.”

Christopher added: “I know our customers will give as much as they can and with our generous donations and our earnings for the day I will have a peaceful nights sleep knowing that I did my bit.”

The owner of Crown Cars Rhos, Andy Roberts was keen to support the pair and has donated £100 to start the boys off.

Andy said: “Once Kris and Chris told me of their plans I wanted to help them raise as much as possible so I got the ball rolling with a donation.

“I think it’s important for a village company like ours to put something back into the community and I know our customers will think the same and give generously.”
