<We brighten the lives of seriously ill children across the UK by granting wishes and providing ongoing support in hospitals and within the community  >

Be a Ray for a Day

On the longest day of the year, the 20th of June (Summer Solstice), help make the world a brighter place for seriously ill children and their families.

From sunrise to sunset, fundraise or donate, to help us grant even more magical wishes for children when they need it the most.

Apply for a magical wish

Wishes are as unique as the children themselves and whether a child wants to be a fireman, meet a real-life mermaid or even the Loch Ness Monster, we work hard to make that wish come true.
