A bumper sticker in support of the campaign to bring radiotherapy services to Altnagelvin hospital was launched in the city yesterday.
The sticker is sponsored by the North West Taxi Proprietors Association and will adorn hundreds of taxis across the city in the coming weeks.
Private motorists have also been encouraged to sport the sticker in support of the campaign, which is being led by local cancer support grout , The Pink Ladies.
Karen Mullan from the Pink Ladies said she hopes the bumper sticker will keep the campaign in the public eye. “We are delighted by this move. It is a big boost to the campaign and. following on from the large turnout at Friday’s Day of Action, it will help us keep our demand in the public focus.
“The taxis go all over the city, day and night, and are seen by everyone. The North West Taxi Proprietors Association have given the Pink Ladies a great boost.
“I would also encourage other drivers in the city to support us by picking up these stickers at the Gasyard and other community centres throughout the city and put in on their cars,” she said.
Andrew McCartney from the North West Taxi Proprietors Association said; “We wanted to do what we could to help get the message out there with this bumper sticker. The North West Taxi Proprietors Association is a cross community group which is fitting because cancer effects everyone.
“However, it’s not just for taxis and we are encouraging everyone with a car put on a sticker and support this campaign.”
