Spreading Christmas cheer: Rupert Grint and Tom Felton visit Children’s Hospital
The Friends Christmas Party was held today at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, where two of our Potter friends, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton attended to spread some holiday cheer. At the annual charity event, children attended a meet and greet with Santa along with Rupert and Tom. The two spent the morning taking pictures with young fans, which granted many Christmas wishes.
Many actors and actresses from the films attend charity events throughout the year. During the promotion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 on DVD at the Wizarding World last month, Rupert Grint had a gift for an unexpecting family.
Noel Edmunds for “Noel’s Christmas Presents” sent the family, who lost their mother during childbirth, to Florida where Rupert met the family during a visit to The Three Broomsticks. He took them on a tour of the entire park, including drinking the famous butterbeer and riding rollercoasters together.
Needless to say, the actors and actresses from the series truly are all about their fans and giving back to the community. What kind of Potter-related charity events are going on in your hometown for Christmas?
