Tom Hardy raises thousands for Manchester victims as he writes passionate condemnation of terrorism

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Tom Hardy is the man we need right now.

He’s great at swearing, he’s generally very handsome, he loves dogs, and he’s even a one-man crime-fighting machine.

But now he’s shown his compassionate side by launching a fundraising page to raise money for those affected by the Manchester terror attack on Monday.

Tom Hardy Justgiving

He writes:

“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. There is no bringing back those who have been lost, pointlessly, in such a cowardly and brutal fashion. I am truly saddened by what I have witnessed and there is no doubt that terrorism is an evil thing. 

“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 events. There will be much to do and for many the beginning of a new life without those that they love and also a new life damaged irrevocably by the actions of a crime which has no reason, no heartfelt purpose but was simply a cruel cowardly and barbaric, meaningless act of violence. A road to recovery unimaginable.

“Terrorism is abhorrent, the killing of innocent families and children unacceptable. And it is with those, the innocent victims and the witnesses of this atrocity that my heartfelt concern and deepest sympathy lies. Please help however you can. Thankyou.”
