July 25, 2012, 7:24am– In a couple of hours Rupert Grint will take part in the incredible honour of carrying the Olympic Torch at the Olympics 2012 which, as we all know, is being held in London! Around the Rings have released a statement about the Olympic Torchbearers and why they were chosen for this special event – as it turns out, Rupert was nominated for all the great charity work he has done:

He was nominated through the Lloyds TSB campaign for inspiring others through his extensive work with children’s charities across the UK. Rupert is actively involved with charities Starlight and the Make-A-Wish Foundation which grant once-in-a-lifetime and magical wishes to seriously and terminally ill children. He also spends much of his free time working with the Teenage Cancer Trust and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

July 4th, 2012, 5:35pm– Tonight Rupert Grint attended the Annual F1 Party which was held to celebrate the official launch of the 2012 Formula 1 British Grand Prix. The party was hosted by Great Ormond Street Hospital and Formula One Management and took place at Battersea Evolution in Battersea Park.

This year, the F1™ Party will begin fundraising for the new surgery centre, where some of the world’s most renowned paediatric surgeons will be operating on patients as young as a few hours through to 18 years old.

December 23rd, 2011, 2:24PM– As we previously mentioned, Rupert Grint made a surprise appearance on the show “Noel’s Christmas Presents” which aired on Sky1, Sunday December 18 at 6:30PM.

On Sky1’s website, the show “Noel’s Christmas Presents” is described as following: “Noel Edmunds and his team resume gift giving duties, recognising and rewarding the country’s most deserving individuals.” And this time around the special treat was given to the Carter family, who had lost their mother during childbirth in 2009. Rupert shared butterbeers with the family in the Hog’s Head pub, took them to Ollivander’s for wands and talked with them about their favourite parts of the park.

Thanks to SnitchSeeker, you can see the very heart-warming video here:

Also, Rupert’s good friend, and fellow Harry Potter star, Tom Felton shared some pictures on his Twitter profile from The Friends Christmas Party, where he wrote that it would look perfect as this year’s Christmas Card.

UPDATE: Bliss Magazine has made a list over “Lads we loved in 2011″ – and to noone’s surprise, Rupert made the list! Here’s what they said about everyone’s favourite ginger:

We’ve always had a bit of a secret crush on the Grint, but watching him get teary at the final Harry Potter premiere made us fall in full blown love with him. He’s basically the reason we’ve been Potter obsessed for the past ten years, so we feel that 2011 is the year to finally confess our love for our fave ginger…WE LOVE YOU RUPERT GRINT!

Aaw… right? :-)
