Owned by The Danny Gallivan Trust, the bus now houses veterans to prevent them from being forced on to the streets.

The Danny Gallivan Trust was initially set up back in 2013 with the mission to house ex-service personnel who are homeless, and has already worked to refurbish two buses.

The bus enables those who are homeless to have a postal address, which enabled them to apply for jobs, houses and pensions.

One of the buses was named after a supporter of the charity who died in 2013, ‘James Flint,’ while the first was named Danny, and provided temporary accommodation to the street community in Crawley.
