James and Oliver Phelps take part in charity golf tournament
We reported earlier today that James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley) took part in a charity soccer match this past Sunday. Today, they helped raise even more money for charity by taking part in a charity golf tournament in Wales.
Ninety-two players took part in the golf tournament at the Celtic Manor resort in Newport in aid of the charity Rugby for Heroes, which helps former servicemen and women adapt to civilian life. Other players included the five-time Olympic gold medal winner Sir Steve Redgrave, former Welsh international rugby player Martyn Williams, and Peter Jones from BBC’s Dragon’s Den.
Mike Tindall, former England Rugby captain, said,
We have quite a few more players than last year’s tournament; it’s a mix of friends and celebrities. We are trying to push it on with the help of the Celtic Manor; we raised just under £50,000 last year and hope to raise even more.
Meanwhile, Oliver said,
I played in Mike’s tournament last year, and it was a great laugh. I have played here four years ago before the Ryder Cup tournament. We came with a few of the Potter cast; they somehow let us come here for the day.
I want to win. My brother and I are quite competitive; as long as my team beats my brother’s I will be happy.
