The money was raised in a cycling campaign organised by Dkolektiv and the Slagalica foundation as part of which cycling duo Igor Toman and Ivica Lenard cycled 540 km from Zagreb to Trogir on the coast.

The objective was to raise HRK 15,000 but eventually HRK 16,650 was raised via 57 donations, said Mirna Šmit of Slagalica.

Bruno Koić of Dkolektiv said that before the campaign they mapped the needs of the children from Ukraine coming to their Social Studio every day. Our wish is to make their stay here as dynamic and nice as possible, he added.

The campaign organisers thanked Zagreb, Rijeka, Jastrebarsko, Trogir and Supetar for their logistic and financial support.

Toman and Lenard are disabled war veterans.

We went through a war and know what it’s like, Toman said, adding that with this campaign they wanted to welcome the Ukrainian friends.

They started on 17 June and the ride took a little over 40 hours without interruption.
