Bearded Tom Hardy hails 'fantastic' Prince's Trust

Thursday March 15, 2012

Actor Tom Hardy hailed the Prince's Trust as "fantastic" ahead of presenting one of their awards. 

Speaking on the red carpet before the ceremony, the 34-year-old Londoner, who was sporting a bushy beard said: "I got involved with the Prince's Trust because I believe what they do is fantastic.

"I wanted to give back in any way that I could to my community and Great Britain, and I was looking for something to get involved with.

"The Prince's Trust is about helping young people up the line and helping out of situations where they're struggling, and putting them in a place where they're in a much better position to deal with what life throws at them and turn their lives right around.

"I thought that was something that I'd like to be a part of, and just asked if I could help out in any way." The Prince's Trust and L'Oreal Paris Celebrate Success Awards were held at the Odeon Leicester Square on Wednesday.

Singer Emeli Sandé, who performed at the event and also presented an award, said: "I think it's important that we celebrate young people because they are essentially our future."
