Drive, which has 16 dealerships across the UK, is aiming to raise £50,000 through employee fundraising activities. The company is also committing to matching every £1 raised to help support the efforts of the team.

Stuart Harrison, joint MD at Drive Motor Retail said: “As a business we understand the importance of charitable activities and have all been particularly keen to support those affected by the conflict in Ukraine. We have thought long and hard about ways we can show our support and have carefully planned a fundraising campaign to help those who need it most.

“We are encouraging everybody at Drive to get involved, both through individual fundraising activities and team events”.

Rob Keenan, joint MD at Drive Motor retail added: “Members of our own team have family and friends directly impacted by the conflict, and we want to do everything we can to help. If everyone pulls together to complete a joint challenge, or supports a few teammates in achieving something extraordinary, we know this target can be reached over the coming months. I am looking forward to seeing the ideas each site comes up with!

“It’s a challenging market and we appreciate that cost of living is on everybody’s mind, but we want to encourage our teams to come together and support those in need.”
