Footballer Declan Rice grants magical wish virtually

Fantastic sports star, West Ham FC midfielder, Declan Rice, helped us grant 11-year-old Harry’s wish to meet him – virtually of course! Harry is currently living with Cystic Fibrosis, a life-limiting genetic condition that affects the lungs and digestive system. He is a huge West Ham fan and got to ask his hero lots of questions.

After the call, Harry said: 

I loved speaking to Declan, and he was a really nice person. I was really happy speaking to him and having a laugh. I never thought I would ever speak to him in my life, so it made my day.

Declan Rice also commented:

It was a real pleasure spending time chatting with Harry and his dad, David, and help Rays of Sunshine grant his wish.  It was an honour to be a part of something so positive and help spread some happiness during lockdown. I look forward to seeing Harry at a West Ham game at some point in the future.

We are so grateful to Declan for granting this wish and making Harry so happy, especially during these challenging times.
