We had the vision for The Ark project, years of trying to get support for the vision, we eventually put a team together of old friends,

Dave Solway an old friend from the 90s, Dave had been in care and homeless many times, slept in bins rooms! done drugs! and felt abandonment to the max! but still he answered the call for help last December and hasen't left the project since, having designed & built most of the carpentry, helped paint the bus and shape the vision, Dave has become a trustee a great personal friend and major part of the project.

David Thomas, An old friend and associate from the old days! David answered the call for help in January and has been with us ever since, painting the bus, supplying and fitting the top of the range heating system and electrics, David has become an ambassador for the people we are seeking to help, and a personal adviser.

currently we have a bus in -Reading with plans for oxford - basingstoke - slough - southampton

"As humans we are called to love, forgive, and show compassion, even in the hardest of circumstances, we can dig deep into our souls, push aside all the world throws at us and choose to love when we want to hate, forgive when we want revenge and show compassion when our thoughts shout out "its not my problem!" Michael Longsmith Founder Chairman The Ark Project
