England Footballers Support Rays of Sunshine!

Over the next 18 months The England Football players will be supporting Rays of Sunshine through the England Footballer Foundation www.englandfootballersfoundation.com

Jermaine Defoe spoke to The Sun Newspaper to say;

"I'm really looking forward to making some child's wish come true. I know that players who already have - like Ashley Cole - have really enjoyed it. At the end of the day, this is all about kids and their suffering. For us, its an honour to be able to spend time with these inspitational youngsters and share an unforgettable experience. To be asked to become involved with this charity is a privilege."

Hospital Ward Wishes

Hospital Ward Wishes

Hospital ward wishes allow hundreds more children to enjoy a distraction during their time in hospital.

Past wishes have included iPads, sensory gardens, cinema outings and a trip to the SnowDome.

We recently fulfilled a wish for 30 children from the oncology ward at Hereford County Hospital to enjoy a bowling and Domino's pizza party.

Play Specialist Stacey Edwards said:

"The bowling party was fun and the children and their families thoroughly enjoyed coming together to share experiences and support one another. We wish to thank Rays of Sunshine for making this wish come true for our patients."
