There are currently 150 JustGiving pages dedicated to the cause.

Tom wrote on his JustGiving page: “I am hoping to raise money for The British Red Cross Society because the families and children will need support.

“What happened at the AG [Ariana Grande] 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.”

He continued: “I hope that 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.

“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.”

Tom finished off by calling terrorism “abhorrent”, adding: “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. Thank you.”
