Galaxy Travel, the go to transport company for wedding cars and airport runs launched their new 24-hour taxi service at the start of August, but with a difference!
Local family man and owner of Galaxy Travel, Dave Lewis, is on a mission to not only provide the best taxi service in Chesterfield, but the most community focussed, socially conscious one as well.
Like most of us, Dave was racking his brain on how to help and support the people of Chesterfield during this time of uncertainty. Having seen the monumental effort by our NHS, Care homes and Hospice staff on the front lines…he knew what he had to do.
For over 17 weeks Galaxy Travel provided free transport to all Ashgate Hospice staff commuting to and from work! This was an amazing act of generosity and an incredible team effort.
Dave hasn’t stopped there! as a thank you to our selfless NHS, care home and hospice staff, whom we all clapped for every Thursday over the summer, Galaxy Travel offer a permanent discount of 20% on all journey’s both work and personal. When booking a cab tell the operator you work for the NHS a care home or hospice, show the driver your NHS/Ashgate or care home ID badge and Galaxy will discount your entire journey by 20% and thank you for your service.
We asked Dave about his generosity and gratitude. He had this to say:
“Being a lifelong resident of Chesterfield, it’s important to give a little back to a town that has given me, and my family so much. Seeing first-hand the amazing work by all the staff at Ashgate Hospice and the Chesterfield Royal, I knew this was a good place to start”.
Galaxy Travel are well on their way to opening their first 24-hour taxi office on Chatsworth Road. To commemorate the occasion, in true Galaxy style they are putting on the ‘Big Bang Raffle’ with some great prizes including £150 cash and a meal for two. Be sure to grab your tickets from one of their drivers on your next journey. Keep an eye out for their super tasty Spooktacular 24-hour bake sale! All proceeds will go to Ashgate Hospice.
It's always great to see businesses thrive in Chesterfield, especially the one’s who do so much for our local communities.
So, why not make your next journey, a Galaxy journey, they really are a company out of this world.
