Olly Murs made the wishes of eight seriously ill fans come true when he treated them to an exclusive meet and greet


The singer has been an ambassador for Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity since 2012 and regularly gives up his time to help grants wishes for seriously ill children in the UK.

The exclusive meeting which took place at the Grosvenor Hotel, London Victoria, on Friday 31st July, where Olly spent some time chatting to all of the children, before posing for photos.  The children, aged between four and 15 years old, travelled across the country to meet their idol.

Amongst them was 12 year old Dominic from Leeds, is currently living with Morquio Disease. His condition requires enzyme replacement therapy at Manchester Children’s Hospital every week.

The 12 year old loves music and his greatest wish is to meet Olly Murs. When it was Dominic’s turn to ask his idol a question, Dominic asked him “How long does it take to do your hair?!” to which Olly replied “It takes my hairdresser about half an hour, with lots of hairspray!” 

Dominic’s wish was made possible with the help of Rays of Sunshine’s corporate partners, Red Rock Entertainment, a film investment company, based at the world famous Elstree Studios in Borehamwood.

Rays of Sunshine ambassador, Olly Murs, commented:

“It was an absolute pleasure to meet such an amazing bunch of kids with Rays of Sunshine. They all had such enthusiasm and it was an absolute pleasure to spend time with them. I love being an ambassador for Rays of Sunshine – they do incredible work putting smiles on the faces of children just these and I hope to be involved for many years to come.”
