Concert For Ukraine is a collaboration between ITV, STV, Livewire Pictures, Global and M&S. ITV will be donating all sponsorship and advertising revenue to the DEC appeal.
Saleh Saeed, chief executive of the DEC, said: “It is heart-breaking to see the deepening crisis unfolding in Ukraine as more refugees cross the borders each day with nothing more than what they can carry. The situation for those inside the country is becoming increasingly precarious.
“But there is something we can all do to bring hope. Funds raised by this concert will make a real difference to those affected by the conflict, sending a strong message of love and enabling DEC charities to help now with urgent aid as well as helping to rebuild lives in the months and years ahead.”
“We are grateful to ITV, Livewire Pictures, Global and M&S for their support to this appeal, our special thanks to ITV who have supported DEC with emergency appeals over many decades and just recently for Afghanistan.”
Concert For Ukraine airs ITV and ITV Hub on Tuesday, 29 March at 8PM.
