Alpha Cars team take Ark Day support on the road


WHEN it comes to private hire and taxi services in and around Basingstoke, they really are the A team – and now Alpha Cars are doing their bit to support Ark Day.

A group of drivers who work for the company, which is based next to Basingstoke railway station, will be taking collection tins in their vehicles in the run-up to, and on, Ark Day to help raise funds for Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Alpha Cars are the biggest taxi firm in north Hampshire, and have been serving the local community for over 35 years, so it’s great to have their backing for Ark Day.

Shaid Khailq, from Alpha Cars, said: “We are delighted to support Ark Day and Ark Cancer Centre Charity, which is a very good local cause.

“By having collection tins in some of our cars, we are delighted to raise awareness of, and funds for, Ark Day and Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

“We are proud to be part of the local community, and our drivers are keen to help make a difference to good causes that support people in the Basingstoke area. Thanks to all of our wonderful customers who support our Ark Day fundraising drive.”

Mark Jones, director of fundraising and communications, said: “Thanks to everyone at Alpha Cars for their great support for Ark Day and Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

“Alpha Cars are a high-profile company in Basingstoke, and it is great to have this significant show of support from their drivers and customers. Every penny and pound counts so thanks to everyone who pops money into the collection tins.”
