Harry Potter - Harry Potter Twins Scale Mountains In Charity Climb

Harry Potter stars James and Oliver Phelps have climbed three mountains in the U.K. to raise money for their favourite charities.
The twins, who play Fred and George Weasley in the wizard franchise, donned their walking boots earlier this month (Jun11) to tackle the Three Peaks Challenge, which saw them scale Ben Nevis in Scotland, Snowdon in North Wales and England's Scafell Pike within 24 hours.
Speaking after the mammoth challenge, Oliver says, "The pride and relief was amazing in completing the three peaks and it was a very rewarding experience. My stamina is higher than I thought it could be. The great support that I received from everybody kept me going, so huge thanks go to all."
The twins' sponsorship money will go towards the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (Rnli) and the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.
James reveals he felt compelled to raise money for the children's hospital after visiting the facility: "It is a day I will never forget. Not only did I see how hard working all of the staff there are, but how amazing the children in there are also. Before I had even left the building I had decided that I wanted to do something to raise a little bit to help rebuild and refurbish the hospital, buy vital equipment and fund pioneering research."
