Though he went unnoticed at first by the local press, it only took a little time for everyone to know that Tom Felton, best known for portraying Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter saga, was wandering around the gardens of the Melía del Mar Hotel with his girlfriend. British actors participated yesterday at the the show and coctel party called Pirate Aventure exhibition, which was promoted by the TUI and was in benefit of children that suffer from Cancer and permanently stay at the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.
Celebrities and British press were staying for free at the Melía del Mar hotel, while some families and around fifteen children were staying at a few hotels around that zone. At 6:00 PM all of them (a group of around sixty or eighty people) found themselves at the coctel party that was offered at the Illetas Estableshment. During it, the children and their family were in perfect liberty to talk and spend some time with all the celebrities, which include: Tom Felton, Pauline Quike, Sue Cleaver, Steve McFadden, Sheila Fergusson, Claire Sweeney, Duncan Pow, Danny Husbands, Richard Arnold, Amanda Mealing, Joe Swash, Kara Tointon, Cheryl Fergison and Katy Cavanagh.
Around 6:30 PM, they all moved to Club de los Piratas (Pirates Club) of Magalluf and managed to collect 70,000 euros with all the tickets that were sold among the British community of the Island that each year, participate of this event. For yesterday’s even, around 750 tickets, that have a value of 50 euros each; in five years they’ve managed to collect 400,000 euros.
