<The Rays of Sunshine community goes well beyond the magical wish our children receive. The Wish is really just the beginning...>

The events team provide a range of exciting, fun and uplifting events for the whole family, and we are passionate about providing a respite from the realities of the child’s treatment or condition. Our events provide a chance for the family to have some fun and spend vital time together, as well as make new friends going through similar experiences.

We offer a ‘relaxed’, fully accessible environment during our events so children can feel free to be themselves whilst not being overwhelmed, and share valuable time with others in a setting which aims to boost their confidence. A quiet zone is often available in many of our events.

Next event! Private Screening of Super Mario Bros. Movie

We are excited to share this opportunity to watch the much-awaited Super Mario Bros movie with us at a private screening at the home of cinema - the British Film Institute!

Taking place on Sunday 30th April at the iconic BFI venue on London's Southbank, we are delighted to invite families in the South East to our next screening event, which will show the film as well as have a chance to play Mario Cart and other games, and enjoy refreshments on us!

This is a 'relaxed performance' so we have an open attitude towards audience noise and movement.

Our Sunshine Choir

The Sunshine Choir has been running for several years and is a wonderful, creative community of children aged 6-17. This is a chance for children with shared experiences to come together to have fun and make new friends!

Monthly online sessions take place throughout the year, and we are excited to be introducing in person workshops over the coming months!

Our first workshop of the year will take place on Wednesday 31st May 2023.


Rays of Sunshine Christmas Party

Our flagship, annual event was held last Christmas at Porchester Hall, near Paddington in London and we had such a lot of fun with our wish families! It was a fabulous, festive Christmas Party with so much entertainment for all the family and a chance to meet Santa in his Grotto.

Details for 2023 will be coming soon!
