On April 8th, 2014, it was announced that Rupert Grint had become an official ambassador of Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Rupert himself said about his being an Ambassador:
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.
Chief Executive of Starlight Children’s Foundation, Neil Swan, said about Rupert:
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.
