Bonnie Wright, Matthew Lewis, and Evanna Lynch Send Messages to Virtual “Harry Potter” Party
Harry Potter alumni Bonnie Wright, Matthew Lewis, and Evanna Lynch have teamed up with a cancer charity to help children celebrate the Boy Who Lived’s birthday.
Wright, Lewis, and Lynch sent video messages to Children with Cancer UK’s virtual Harry Potter party held on July 31. The charity raises money to improve survival rates across all types of children’s cancer, as well as help children and their families live better lives during and after treatment.
Fifty children whose lives have been affected by cancer attended the virtual party, which included dressing up as Potter characters and taking part in quizzes and activities with their families from their homes.
✨ Today we celebrated #HarryPotter‘s birthday by putting on a virtual party for 50 children impacted by cancer.
🙏 Thank you to @Mattdavelewis (aka Neville Longbottom), @thisisbwright (aka Ginny Weasley) and Evanna (aka #LunaLovegood) who have sent messages to celebrate. pic.twitter.com/djEZ6X9V5P

Although the videos were not shared online, the Irish Sun published transcripts for both Lynch’s and Wright’s messages. According to the Irish Sun, Lynch wished everyone a happy Harry’s birthday and warned everyone to watch out for Nargles:
This video is for everyone at Children with Cancer UK. I hear that you are celebrating Harry’s birthday today; I wanted to wish you all a happy Harry’s birthday and hope you’re all having a good day and enjoying hanging out with each other. I’m sure you’re all dressed up as Harry Potter characters; I hope there are a few Lunas in there. Have a great time, ace the quizzes and watch out for Nargles, sending you lots and lots of love.
Wright wished everyone a wonderful event and also shared how happy she was to learn that the children were celebrating Harry’s birthday:
I had such a joy playing Ginny, and I am so pleased to hear that you are celebrating Harry Potter’s birthday. Harry would be very pleased that you are doing such a thing. I hope you have a wonderful celebration, and I’m sending all my love to you at Children with Cancer UK. Happy birthday, Harry.
The content of Lewis’s video message is not yet known, but it’s only right that some magic should be kept for the incredible children and their families who attended the party.
