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).
Remember that you can watch the entire Torch Relay live HERE! Rupert is set to leave Middlesex University at 1:47pm UK time. So stay tuned. We will of course update you all here on the site and on our twitter where we might even post an exclusive goodie or two
Our staff is present at the relay and will try to update us throughout the event. We have already uploaded some pictures from Middlesex University where you can see how they are preparing for the torch (and Rupert) to arrive in the beautiful summer weather. You can see the pics here and stay tuned for many more updates!

UPDATE: Rupert was interviewed by the BBC right after he finished his part of the relay. Check it out here!
Another interview has surfaced, this time by The Telegraph:
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. Rupert attended the party with his younger brother James, and they both looked handsome on the red carpet.
Not only does this sound like a fun night for Rupert and James, but the party also helped raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital:
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.
Check out the first picture of Rupert attending the F1 Party in our gallery here! We will update with more pics as soon as they become available.
UPDATE: We have four new HQ pictures which you can view here. We’re working to bring you more, so stay tuned! NOTE: We’ve added a few more and will be adding more tomorrow.
UPDATE #2: As promised more photos from last night’s event can be found here.

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.
Thanks to the girls from One Step Beyond, you can view some pictures from The Friends Christmas Party in our Gallery here!
