Tom Hardy Creates Fund For Victims Of London’s Grenfell Tower Blaze

Tom Hardy is lending his support to victims of the Grenfell Tower fire that took the lives of a reported 30 people and injured dozens more on Wednesday in London.

Following the horrific event, whose cause has yet to be identified, the 39-year-old London-born actor created a JustGiving donation page with funds going to support victims of the fire through the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation.

“As a Londoner and as a human being, it is impossible to be unaffected by the harrowing, unnecessary loss of life, injury, sorrow and the continuing desperate and disturbing situation facing those that were residents of Grenfell Tower, Latimer Road West London,” Hardy wrote.

“My heart goes out to those who have lost their lives and their loved ones,” he added. “My thoughts are with the innocent families who are suffering – those who have lost their homes and possessions, their friends, families, relatives, children, and their lives in a disaster which could have been avoided.”

Hardy goes on to cite his reasons for choosing the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation, noting that all funds raised will go “directly to victims and families.” Donations currently sit at over $25,000 with nearly 300 people supporting the fund.

The “Mad Max: Fury Road” star previously launched a crowd-sourcing campaign following the Manchester Arena attack outside of an Ariana Grande concert last May, which raised over $65,000, greatly surpassing the actor’s original $26,000 goal.
