Cambridge law firm donates £10,000 to Ukraine appeal

March 11, 2022

Cambridge law firm Stone King has donated £10,000 to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) appeal in aid of Ukraine.

The donation comes from the firm’s charitable arm, the Stone King Foundation, and was made following the Russian invasion which has left millions of people displaced.

Managing Partner Steven Greenwood said: “We feel that this is a really effective way of giving to large organisations that already have a presence on the ground and who can support those fleeing Ukraine.

“We have all been moved by the terrible events taking place and want to support this worthwhile appeal in an effective way as possible. We urge fellow businesses to do the same and note that our Government has matched donations up to £25m.”

Stone King is at Bateman House, Hills Road in Cambridge with its other offices in Bath, Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds and London.

The DEC appeal has already reached in excess of £100m in donations with the UN saying up to 4 million people may be forced to leave the country and 7 million may lose their homes inside Ukraine, according to The Guardian.

The DEC’s humanitarian appeal for Ukraine brings together 15 UK aid agencies, including Oxfam, Save the Children UK, Age International, British Red Cross, Cafod, Christian Aid and Islamic Relief.
