I want to congratulate Wessex Cars on sending me two of the kindest, most helpful taxi drivers recently.

I am currently suffering from severe fluid retention which makes it extremely difficult to walk and lift my heavy swollen legs into and out of a car.   

Both of the taxi drivers taking and bringing me back from my friend’s house in the city centre were so understanding and kind; helping me in and out of the cars, carrying my bags to the door and even on return making sure I got in my house safely, putting my bags inside. 

I was so impressed with their kindness that I wanted to express my gratitude publicly.

Jean Carswell, 

Hazel Court,
