April 8th, 2014, 8:42am– The Starlight Children’s Foundation has just named Rupert Grint an official amassador for their charity. You might remember that Rupert attended a christmas party for the Starlight charity where we saw him meet Callum (pictured below) who is a huge Harry Potter and Ron Weasley fan.
Rupert had this to say about this great honour:
It was a great pleasure to help Starlight grant Callum’s wish before Christmas and I really look forward to doing more to support this wonderful charity. I have seen first hand just how much of an impact a Starlight Wish can have on a seriously ill child – it really makes a huge difference to them and their family – so I am delighted to become a Starlight Ambassador
Neil Swan, Chief Executive of Starlight Children’s Foundation, had this to say about Rupert becoming an ambassador:
We are thrilled to welcome Rupert on board as an Ambassador. With his experience of Starlight’s work, popularity with young children and families, great sense of fun and charm, Rupert is perfect for Starlight and we are very excited about working with him.
