When Russian forces invaded Ukraine, a huge number of people were left in a very bad situation. Aid was desperately needed and that meant money needed to be raised. The DEC Ukrainian Humanitarian Appeal was set up to get much-needed help to the Ukrainian people.

With more than 13 million people being displaced as a result of the invasion, the Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) started their appeal to raise funds to support its work in Ukraine.

Everyone here at Bridge Classic Cars wanted to help out any way we could and, luckily, some of our friends stepped up too.

One of our previous competition winners, Jar Joyce, got in touch with us and very kindly offered his prize, our 1989 TVR S2 to put back into our competition draw with all the money raised from ticket sales going directly to the DEC Ukrainian Humanitarian Appeal.

Other companies such as Hagerty UK, Car & Classic, Classic and Sportscar Magazine, and more got involved too and, together, we were able to raise £38,500.

We are proud to have raised this money to help people in Ukraine who have been so badly affected by the war.

We are extremely grateful to Jar for offering his beautiful car to us, to all the companies and individuals who helped spread the word, and to everyone who bought a ticket for the draw.

Bridge Classic Cars are passionate about supporting the important work of charities such as the DEC. We have worked with several companies and individuals in order to raise a substantial amount of money for worthwhile causes and we will continue to do so in the future.

All of our charity projects can be seen here.
