December 15th, 2011, 10:30AM– Rupert Grint makes sure to spread some Christmas joy in the name of charity. Earlier today, Rupert Grint and his friend, Harry Potter co-star, Tom Felton attended The Friends Christmas Party at the children’s hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, UK. They spent the morning with young fans and had pictures taken with them.
Earlier today, Tom Felton wrote the following on his Twitter profile: “Beautiful day in London! May even get to see my special ginger friend x”
The Friends Christmas Party does sound like a lovely and touching event. On the Great Ormon Street Hospital‘s website, it is described like a heart-warming event:
Every child will have the chance to meet Santa, give him their Christmas wish list, and take home special early Christmas treats and a gift.
As always, there will be a very special Christmas party for 1,500 patients and their families. Father Christmas will be joined by helpers and special friends, and there will be games, music, party food, dancing and much more.
Children too sick to attend the party won’t miss out, though, as Santa will visit the children in the hospital so that they know they haven’t been forgotten.
