Hector Bellerin Pledges To Help Grenfell Tower Victims

1m raised as offers of help pour in after Grenfell Tower fire

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has vowed to donate money towards the Grenfell Tower fire victims.

Barcelona ace and Spain Under-21 team-mate Denis Suarez last week said that Bellerin is torn over his future.

At least 58 people are missing and presumed dead after the disaster in North Kensington, London on Wednesday.

Currently, Bellerin is out on worldwide duty with Spain at the Under-21s European Championship in Poland, but during his absence is hoping that a deal will commence between Arsenal and his former club youth-level club Barcelona.

Spain will kick their campaign off tonight when they take on Macedonia in Group B - and if it all goes well for Bellerin, he could end up contributing as much as £22,500 to the fund for the victims.

And while there are a few snide comments about him trying to get more game time at the tournament, it's a very good gesture from Bellerín - if Spain reach the final and he plays every game, the total would be £22,500.

Thirty people have so far been confirmed dead after the bad incident, with a further 70 remaining unaccounted for, and the death toll is expected to rise well above that. Nearby QPR and Fulham both collected donations and offered support to those affected, and Ryan Bertrand and Raheem Sterling have made donations.
