“Big T” Charities

We raise money for charity every year.

Some of our charity partners may be at the show and will be pleased to talk to you.

DEC – Disasters Emergency Committee


Leaving everything behind, people are fleeing conflict in Ukraine.
They need shelter, food and water.

More than 10 million people have fled their homes to escape the conflict in Ukraine, including 4 million who have fled to other countries as refugees and another 6.5 million who are internally displaced.

Heavy fighting, shelling and air strikes across the country have had devastating consequences for ordinary people. Homes have been destroyed. Families have been separated. Lives have been lost.

At Ukraine’s borders with Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova, huge numbers of people are arriving with only what they can carry.

DEC charities and their local partners are in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries providing food, water, shelter and medical assistance.

  • £30 could provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month
  • £50 could provide blankets for four families
  • £100 could provide emergency food for two families for one month
