Taxi drivers have come together to raise nearly £3,000 for a children's hospital ward.
Hackney carriage drivers presented the cheque today (December 20) to the Queen's Medical Centre.
The money was raised for Nottingham Children's Hospital The Big Appeal campaign.
The challenge is to raise £4m by 2021, and the money will be spent on highly specialised diagnostic equipment that can accurately identifies illness and disease earlier.
So far, in the last 12 months more than £700,000 has been raised.
He added: "We chose to help the children's ward, as Christmas time you associate it with them, and they always need help.
"Everyone also has a link to the QMC, they've been there, been born there, or had a relative stay there.
"It was the first charity we have gone with. But in the future we are hoping to help others as well."
Bashir Latif, Unite the Union chairman, and a driver himself, said: "We all love Nottingham, and we all want what’s best for this city.
"Nottingham remains an inclusive place where all types of people and businesses can continue to prosper for years to come.
"It is always nice to put something back and especially at this special time of year.
"Not everyone will be fortunate enough to spend time at home with family, and this is just something we wanted to do to make life a little easier for others".
Nottingham currently has 411 Hackney cabs and more than 500 drivers in the city and whilst times have been tough for the trade this year, the drivers say it's always nice to remember others who can be in far worse positions.
Fundraising manager at Nottingham Hospitals Charity, Nick Lawford, said: "We are so grateful to Nottingham’s Hackney carriage drivers and Unite the Union for making such a generous donation to Nottingham Children’s Hospital – it is a wonderful Christmas gift.
"We know that having a child in hospital is one of the most stressful experiences a family will ever have to face. T
"That’s why, in November 2016, we launched our Big Appeal for Nottingham Children’s Hospital.
"Thanks to the passion, dedication and generosity of people like Nottingham’s cabbies, we know we will make this happen."
