Fantastic Beasts stars reunite to volunteer for coronavirus charity


Harry Potter universe stars Jude Law and Katherine Waterston have been sprinkling a bit of magic by volunteering for a charity set up to help those in need during the coronavirus crisis in the UK.

The star duo – who feature in Harry Potter spin-off film series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – rolled up their sleeves to volunteer for non-profit organisation SpareHand and helped deliver food crates to those in need on Thursday.

BAFTA winner Jude, 47, and 40-year-old actress Katherine also helped raise awareness of the new charity – which matches volunteers to projects needing extra help in nearby neighbourhoods.

With arms full of products, the Hollywood stars posed for a snap as they delivered food packages to Magic Breakfast – which supplies nutritious breakfasts to children at risk of hunger.
