A GROUP of female Spanish taxi drivers are launching a campaign to fight cancer.
The kind-hearted cabbies are selling bracelets to raise money for the charity Cris Cancer, which funds investigations into a cure for the disease.
The 90 drivers, 20 based in Malaga, have raised more than €50,000 in the past three years.
The secretary of the Federation of Autonomous Taxi Drivers, Eva Torres, revealed that for the first two years the cabbies sold calendars, but switched to bracelets as they can be sold all year round.
“We made them ourselves between fares, or when we were at home watching the television,” she said.
