Rupert's butterfly
Harry Potter star, Rupert Grint, has used his creative talents to support Keech Hospice Care’s adult and children’s hospices – a charity located close to his Hertfordshire home.

The wizard star is known to enjoy drawing and painting in his spare time and has produced an elaborate, coloured butterfly sketch – a theme which was chosen to represent the beauty of all lives, however short they may be.

Grint’s artwork will join the creations of many other celebrities including Coldplay, Theo Walcott and Fearne Cotton.

The special group of paintings, named ‘The Chrysalis Collection’, will be auctioned off on the eBay in March and Rupert is expected to be a popular choice.

“We are delighted Rupert has chosen to support his local hospice charity, especially because many of the children we care for are big fans of the Harry Potter star," Keech fundraiser Laura Devine said.

“Rupert’s masterpiece features many faces inside the butterfly’s wings, each with their own quirky expression and unique character – a true Harry Potter creation that will have the fans thrilled!”

The auction will run from 19th to 28th March and there will be a public exhibition of the star-studded artwork throughout the month at the Stockwood Discovery Centre in Luton, nearby the site of the hospices.

All proceeds will help Keech Hospice Care continue supporting adult and children with life-limiting illnesses, and their families.
