Tom Hardy Launches Fundraising Page for Victims of the Manchester Attack

Everyone has been left reeling after the sickening Manchester bombing but signs of solidarity are showing, especially from Tom Hardy.

The Hollywood actor has taken part in raising funds for the victims of the attack via his page on Just Giving.

So far, funds have reached almost over £2m from various organisations, individuals and communities rallying round.

39-year-old Tom Hardy has now played his part and has been urging everyone to donate what they can.

He hoped to raise £15,000 for The British Red Cross Society and he has already almost hit his target.

He thanked those who took the time to donate what they could and left a heartfelt message:

“What happened last night at the AG concert in Manchester was a tragedy; families and children attacked and murdered; in a place where they should be safe and enjoying a concert.”

“It is an inconceivable atrocity … I am truly saddened by what I have witnessed.”

“I hope between us we can raise some funds as a gesture of goodwill and love to help in some small way towards repairing some if any of the damage done in the wake of last night’s event.”

Other donations have flooded in from others such as football star Yaya Toure who pledged £100,000.

The Wayne Rooney Foundation has pledged the same amount and the Arsenal Foundation has donated £50,000.

In what seems like dark times right now, there is always love and light ready to overshadow them.

Communities, individuals, and celebrities have poured out their sympathies and helped in whatever way they can.

So if you can and want to make a donation, please do so on whatever page you choose.

If you can’t make a donation, then please share any fundraising pages to your friends and family.

No matter what, terrorism will not win and humanity will always fight back even harder with love, light, and solidarity.

Our thoughts are with those affected.
