David Beckham’s sons volunteered at a local church to help the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire
Brooklyn, 18, Romeo, 14, and Cruz, 12, were seen attending the Westbourne Park Baptist Church, speaking to volunteers and victims as well as sorting through donations.
At one point, Brooklyn was pictured ‘in tears’ reading the tributes among the flowers and teddies left as a memorial to those who lost their lives.

While a source told the Mail: “The Beckham boys all were volunteering at a local church after school yesterday and today, helping sort through donations…This was done privately as local kids, upset by the tragedy in their neighbourhood and wanting to help out.”
This comes after Tom Hardy set up a JustGiving page to help the victims.
On the page, he wrote: “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. It is impossible not to feel deep, profound shock and just stand by and not make the effort to help those who are innocent victims of a seemingly gross negligence.”

He continued: “It is impossible not to commend the local community for their response of coming together to support those immediately affected by this tragedy at this time, and I am asking you to please help me raise funds to assist those who are suffering and their families.
“My heart goes out to those who have lost their lives and their loved ones. 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.
“People who now have literally nothing within a matter of hours due to what appears to be a man-made mistake and a gross act of negligence which demands a full public enquiry. Those found guilty to be held responsible and to account for gross and criminal negligence.”
At the time of writing, he’s managed to raise over £40,000 for the victims and their families.
