Bellerin confirms he will donate £19,050 to British Red Cross after Grenfell Tower disaster

Date Posted,July 2, 2017

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has donated £19,050 to the British Red Cross following the Grenfell Tower fire .

Following the heartbreaking scenes in west London, where 80 people have been confirmed dead following the devastating blaze at Grenfell Tower in Kensington, Bellerin took to Twitter to confirm he will be putting his hand in his pocket.

The 22-year-old announced before the tournament that he would donate £50 for every minute he played for Spain in Poland.

And the first choice right back only missed out on the 1-0 win over Serbia, with the side already through to the semi-finals.

He eventually made four appearances, in which he played the full 90 minutes in each, before his side lost 1-0 to Germany in the final.

With added time taken into account, Bellerin has confirmed he played for 381 minutes in Poland.

Bellerin followed Raheem Sterling in pledging money to help families affected by the fire, after the Manchester City star said he will donate a ‘substantial sum’ to the disaster.

“This is a deep and sad situation, one that’s close to my heart and hard to swallow. I would like to help in the best way I can,” the England international told the BBC.

“It is only a small step, but small steps lead to big changes if we all come together.

“My condolences to the affected families, also the individuals who lost their homes.”

Footballer Marvin Morgan also staged a celebrity football match in a bid to raise £10,000 for cause.
