Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal

£38,500 Raised For The DEC Ukrainian Humanitarian Appeal

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.

Final Donation – Fifth Donation and Total Raised for the DEC Ukrainian Humanitarian Appeal

The final donation for the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal has been sent from Bridge Classic Cars Competitions from our 1989 TVR S2 competition.

The total amount raised has also been calculated and it is over £38,500! An incredible amount which as gone directly to the DEC to help the people of Ukraine during the invasion and the displacement of those affected.

We just want to say a massive thank you from all of us at Bridge Classic Cars to everyone who entered and has massively helped those affected in Ukraine.

The Good Cause – Spotting a Mobile Humanitarian Aid Ambulance in Woodbridge

Out and about on our recent travels, our director Craig spotted this Mercedes Humanitarian Medical Ambulance. It’s amazing to see the overwhelming support and generosity pouring out to the people of Ukraine from across Europe and the UK.

Does anyone out there know the charity that it’s connected to at all? We would love to find out more.

Also, our 1989 TVR S2 Ukraine Appeal competition ends this Thursday with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. Like this ambulance, it will be going to help those affected first-hand by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

First Donation – Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal 1989 TVR S2

The first round of donations has been sent to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Appeal from our 1989 TVR S2 competition.

Jar has selflessly donated the car for this appeal in order to raise as much as possible to help the people of Ukraine directly affected by the invasion. In under a week, we have managed to send £10,000! A truly incredible total that will be going directly to the charities and organisations involved in helping those in direct need.
