As we continue to grow our business and share the benefits of car sharing with more and more people, we want to find ways of taking you behind the scenes to show you what life at Karshare is really like. This week, we’re here to tell you about our recent testimonial video shoot that took place (on a very, very rainy day) in Bristol a few weeks ago. As we’ve launched in more and more areas across the country, we have learned that ‘social proof’ is key to reaching new audiences.

One of the most difficult aspects of living through this pandemic has been not being able to support our local favourites who formed such a huge part of everyday life back when the world looked a bit different. Luckily, thanks to Zoom and some ingenious thinking, a lot of Bristol’s independent scene has made the move online, shifting their offer to suit our lockdown lives. To help you continue supporting your locals, we have listed some of our favourite at-home experiences, brought to you by the best of Bristol.

Part 2 of our Cared for by Karshare series sees us checking in with Julie Dempster, Founding Director of Bristol Outreach Services for the Homeless (BOSH), a charity in Bristol.

When the pandemic struck the UK, Karshare asked local communities in Bristol to donate their cars to NHS, frontline and key workers so they could get to work safely. Public transport was less frequent and unreliable, so having immediate access to a car made their life and journeys easier.

The Karshare community scheme to help mobilise front-line workers during the Coronavirus crisis was first launched in Bristol – and as a Bristolian I was both inspired and grateful to the public and all the healthcare professionals and volunteers who jumped on board this car sharing scheme so readily. To see first-hand how it has changed peoples’ lives in my home town during this crisis has been a privilege.

As part of the operations team at Karshare I’m privileged to meet some truly remarkable people – not just car owners who selflessly donate their cars to people who can use them, but also the inspirational healthcare workers going above and beyond to help people during this Coronavirus crisis.05

On Friday I drove out of London and down an eerily deserted M23 to Brighton. I was on this journey to meet one of the teams we are supporting at the Brighton Unemployed Centre Families Project, and my objective was to provide them with their first “donated” car from Karshare. It’s about two hours to Brighton from where I live in south London, but I didn’t realise how much of a trip it would turn out to be.
