Over the holidays, fans may remember that Rupert attended the Downing Street Christmas party in support of the Starlight Foundation. At the party, Rupert helped grant the wish of a young boy and massive "Harry Potter" fan named Callum.
Today, it was announced that Rupert is taking his involvement with the charity to the next level. He's been named an Ambassador for the Starlight Children's Foundation! Starlight grants wishes for seriously and terminally ill children.
On his appointment as Ambassador, Rupert said:
“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, added:
“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.”
