London: British actor Tom Hardy will drive across Siberia to raise money for a homeless charity.

The 34-year-old is a patron of British organisation Flack, which helps the homeless by involving them in the production of a monthly magazine, and he is aiming to raise $48,000 by embarking on a journey across the isolated Russian region.

Hardy has set up an internet donation page on and he`s urging fans to donate whatever they can to help, reports

"I`ve been supporting Flack since it first started and now I`m about to set off to drive across Siberia to raise money for three charities I care about including, of course, Flack," he posted on his official fan page.

"So please do cheer me on as I brave the Siberian Steppes by donating whatever you can afford. I hope to send the odd pic from along the way if I can work out how to use my phone without taking my gloves off," he further added.
