Looking for another way to donate to Rays of Sunshine? Find out how else you can give, and help grant more wishes for seriously ill children at the same time, below.

Special Occasions Donations:

Why not ask for a different type of wish? Instead of a gift, you could ask your friends and family to donate to Rays of Sunshine on your behalf. They can donate as much or as little as they like.

This is a great way to help spread more awareness of Rays of Sunshine while also feeling good about yourself and helping others.

Just have them call 0208 782 1171 and we will help them make their donation, it is very straightforward and will only take 5 minutes.

Or you could set up a specific JustGiving or VirginMoneyGiving page where everyone can donate directly.

Individual Giving:

Many of our valued supporters choose to donate to Rays of Sunshine on a monthly basis.

You can do this by setting up a standing order direct to the charity through your bank.

If you would like to do this, please call 0208 782 1171 and we will give you all the information you will need.

Payroll Giving:

Payroll Giving (also called Give As You Earn) is a way for employees to give to charity direct from their salary.

Donations are made before tax, so employees not only give to charity, they also pay less tax.

You can choose to donate as much or as little as you like. If this is something of interest, you can speak to your company about it or call 0208 782 1171 and we will advise you as best we can.

One off Donations:

We welcome one off donations of any amount. Please call 0208 782 1171  and we will be able to do this over the phone or give you the details you will need to do this in your own bank.

You can also donate via our website here: 

Tribute funds:

If you’re planning your event in memory of a relative or friend, you might like to set up a Tribute Fund.

This is a place where you and others can remember, celebrate and share. You can also pay in the money you’ve raised and people can continue to donate through the fund even after your event has finished. Unlike a JustGiving Page, a Tribute Fund is permanent and doesn’t close three months after your event. You can link lots of different events to a fund and your friends and family will be able to leave messages, donations, and light a candle in memory.

100% of funds go to Rays of Sunshine, so all of the money that you raise will go toward helping us grant as many magical wishes as possible. If this is something you’d like to do please call 0208 782 1171 and we would be happy to give you some more information.

Memory Giving:

Memory Giving lets you make an on-line donation in memory of a loved one. For more information, please visit:

Donate Your Car:

Do you own a vehicle that you want to sell or get rid of? Then please think about donating it to us through Giveacar!

Giveacar raises money for UK charities by scrapping and selling old cars. They provide a nationwide FREE service which:

  • Arranges the collection of the vehicle from your home for FREE; and
  • Recycles it at an authorised facility or sends it to auction (depending on its age and condition).

Scrap donations raise about £35 for the charity (depending on the price of metal) while auction cars can raise much more.

To arrange the donation of a car, visit or call 020 7736 4242, quoting Rays of Sunshine as your preferred charity.
