In 2013 Rupert was able to attend Starlight’s annual Children’s Christmas Party at No 11 Downing Street, which was hosted for the charity by Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rt Hon George Osborne MP.
During the party, Rupert helped to make the dearest wish of one of his young fans, 9 year old Callum Wilson, come true. Callum, who comes from Falkirk, suffers from a serious condition called neurofibromatosis, which causes tumours to grow along his nerves. Meeting Rupert was truly a dream come true for Callum.
This was not the first wish that Rupert has granted for Starlight and he hopes that, in his role as Ambassador, he will be able to do plenty more to help the charity.
