Sponsoring Best of Wearside Awards

The search for the heroes of Wearside have returned!

Station Taxis are proud to be part of the Best of Wearside Awards which will honour the unsung heroes of our community.

Now in our 115th year of business and just clinching the Age Friendly Business of the Year Award at this year’s Sunderland Echo Portfolio Awards, we are keen to continue to support the local community.

“We are delighted to be supporting another great initiative led by the Sunderland Echo.

“Sponsoring the Child of Courage Category was important to us as it honours and recognises courageous young people in Sunderland, which is something that should be celebrated

“As Sunderland’s local taxi company, we work closely within the community with local charities, schools and community groups”
