Grant Wishes This New Year & Take on a New Challenge

2015 was a jam-packed year for Rays of Sunshine and saw us send over 200 seriously ill children on dream holidays, organise for 145 children to meet their idols and make lots of children’s dreams to be doctors, princesses and even the captain of a cruise ship for a day come true!

Last year we received 1,117 wishes, which is 200 more wishes than our target and an increase of 36% on the previous year. So this year, we need YOUR help more than ever before. In 2016, we aim to grant over 1,200 wishes but we can’t do this without YOU! 

Want to take on a new challenge?  With reduced registration fees on some fantastic challenge events, as well as training tips, and a whole load of Sunshine support, Team Rays will make sure you will enjoy clocking up the miles (and smiles) in 2016.
