Help Rays of Sunshine continue brightening the lives of seriously ill children today and in the future

Across the UK, seriously ill children and their families need our support more than ever as they endure long periods of isolation either at home or whilst receiving treatment in hospital.

Sadly, we have had to postpone all of our wishes until the situation is clearer and it is deemed safe for our beneficiaries, who are amongst the most vulnerable members of society, to travel or be out in public. However, as a charity we remain committed at this time to continuing to bring sunshine and positivity to our children and families, when they really do need it the most.

With your generosity, we can ensure that we can be there for seriously ill children up and down the country now and in the future.  By supporting our Covid-19 Appeal you’ll:

  1. Provide vital support to play specialists, carers and the hospitals treating seriously ill young people during this time by delivering bespoke care packages
  2. Provide the UK’s most vulnerable children with entertainment and distraction during an extended period of isolation
  3. Provide joy and hope to seriously ill children and their families during these uncertain times by ensuring we can continue to grant their wishes and support them in the future


We know that this is an extremely difficult time for everyone, so we will be very grateful for anything you can do to support Rays of Sunshine and the children and families we help.

£10 –  will fund materials for a child to participate in a live interactive activity workshop (i.e. balloons/magic kit)

£20 will fund an isolation pack for a seriously ill child who is receiving treatment in hospital

£30 –  will enable us to provide edible care packages for parents and NHS staff caring for seriously ill children in hospital




On behalf of the children and families we help, we thank you for your continued support. At this very challenging time, we are reliant on your generosity more than ever to continue to bring joy and hope to seriously ill children across the UK.
