Stephen Tapp, who owns Wrexham’s Trainer Revival store, previously suffered a terrible tragedy with his business. Apparently, a bunch of thieves broke into the shop, getting away with £7,000 worth of stock. To stop the business from closure, Tapp started a fundraiser targeting £3,500 donation. Interestingly, Tapp noticed how a pledge from Rob and Ryan appeared on his fundraiser page.

Shortly after, the owner realized that the money was from the Hollywood A-listers. As impressive as it may sound, Tapp ended up raising over £8,000 to save his business. The businessman was in tears after the wholesome gesture from Wrexham’s co-owners. He took to Twitter to express his gratitude to the two as he wrote, “literally saved my business and I’ll be forever grateful. ” Tapp could not hold his feelings back as he concluded, “If you only knew what that donation has meant to my life.”
