In just ten years, local company CamCab has become one of the top 30 most profitable taxi companies in the country, recently signing a deal to become part of the national network of Addison Lee, one of London's largest private hire companies. CamCab's high growth is no accident: it has been achieved by a combination of close attention to detail, high-quality training and using the latest technology to provide the very best and safest customer experience. The company takes its environmental responsibilities seriously too, running only low-emission vehicles and using recycled water in the Green Clean car wash.

Whilst growing a successful business is important to him, founder and managing director Rowhi Nemer also places great importance on giving back to the community. Magpas, which brings specialist A&E care by land and air to patients in life threatening emergencies in the Eastern region and beyond, is one of a number of local causes that have benefitted from CamCab's generosity.

Rowhi was so impressed with the vital service Magpas delivers, he set up a complimentary CamCab taxi account for the Magpas Helimedix team to use when they find themselves stranded at Addenbrooke's Hospital, needing to get back to base after treating patients.

Tickets for the dinner are priced at £60 each and can be purchased at www.camcabcharitydinner.org.uk where you can also see the full list of items to be auctioned.

Why not march for Magpas?

Why not march for Magpas?

The 17th Annual Pathfinder March will be on Saturday 20th June. Why not take part for Magpas Helimedix and get your friends and family to sponsor you. It’ll also be a wonderful opportunity to meet members of the armed forces who are based around the county.

Each year the Pathfinder March takes place in memory of the RAF’s elite WW2 Pathfinder Force, by creating a gruelling 46 mile march around Cambridgeshire.

The march starts at RAF Wyton and loops around the four main airbases of the Pathfinder Force: RAF Graveley, RAF Oakington, RAF Warboys, and ending up again at RAF Wyton.

If the 46 mile march seems too much, you can always take part as a relay team.

To enter in the march, please visit www.pathfindermarch.co.uk, or contact Mr Garton at RAF Wyton on 01480 52451 Ext 4495.  Cost of entry is £18 per person, which will include a commemorative Pathfinder March t-shirt (performance quality), a medal for completing the March, and a certificate for participation. 

Please contact the Magpas Fundraising Team for your sponsorship form, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 01480 371060 (Option 2), and help us to save lives as you walk.
