ONE deserving local family will receive a life-changing Christmas present this year, thanks to city firm Inverness Taxis.

Managing director Gavin Johnston is enlisting the power of social media to help in the search for a family to receive the special gift of their own car.

As well as the car, a three-year old Citroen Berlingo which has been retired from taxi duty, the family will also receive the gift of a turkey hamper, tickets for this year’s Eden Court panto, Beauty and the Beast, and also a family pass for Landmark forest adventure park in Carrbridge.

“We move a lot of families around and you see some families that would benefit from their own transport,” Mr Johnston said.

“We’ve had a good year, all the drivers make a living and we serve the public all year, so it’s not much that we are doing. We are just giving a little bit back.”

To help find a worthy family, Gavin is making an appeal on the company’s social media channels for suggestions as to who might benefit from this special Christmas gift.

“We want the public to suggest a family who have hit hard times this year and could do with a lift like this,” Mr Johnston added.
