Proud to support Community Action Ark Project

At Select Car Leasing, we're proud to be supporting a great cause such as Community Action Ark Project, where Michael Longsmith and his team have committed themselves to improving the lives of individuals sleeping rough on the streets of Reading. Offering shelter, food and hospitality with the use of their incredible converted double-decker bus. The charity has now been deservedly nominated for 2017 Charity of the Year.

Get Reading have published an article on the vital work they will be doing in helping Reading’s homeless population.

Michael Longsmith along with his team worked to convert a rundown double decker bus into a mobile shelter, and his work was entered for the Pride of Reading award & then the Community Action Ark Project (CAAP) was nominated for Charity of the Year by a number of local residents & supporters.

Here is what people says: Meri O'Connell, from Tilehurst, said:

                       “They are doing something tangible to improve the lives of some of Reading's most vulnerable people.”

                       While Susan Whitty from Coley Park added: “They deserve to win for providing a vital safe place for people to shelter at night.”

The bus transformation idea has been a success for CAAP volunteers and will offer shelter, counselling, employment advice and medical care. And we are proud to provide the double decker bus which will help people who are really in need of it.
