Jupiter is delighted to announce their new charity partner this year is Rays of Sunshine, www.raysofsunshine.org.uk, a UK registered children’s charity that brightens the lives of seriously ill children aged 3 to 18 by granting their wishes, granting hospital ward wishes and organising large scale events.
Our aim is to raise £50,000 in the first year of the partnership to fund magical wishes for brave and deserving children and to do that WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Every day of the year Rays of Sunshine gives brave and deserving young people the chance to put their illness on hold and enjoy a moment of escape. Over 6,000 individual wishes have been granted since the charity was set up in 2003. Wishes can be as unique as the children themselves and whether a child wants to be a princess or a fireman for the day, go to Disneyland in Paris, visit Santa in Lapland, own an iPad, meet a favourite celebrity or even a ‘real life’ mermaid, Rays of Sunshine works hard to make that wish come true.
Rays of Sunshine also grants ward wishes, which offer a distraction to hundreds of children during their time in hospital or a hospice. Events and outings are held throughout the year for large groups of seriously ill children including trips to theme parks, hospital activity/pamper days and parties.
Shane Harris, CEO, Jupiter Hotels commented, “We are delighted to be working with Rays of Sunshine as our new chosen charity, a worthwhile cause which is close to all of our hearts at Jupiter Hotels. All of our hotels have shown real enthusiasm and commitment to our charity initiative which is incredibly important in our continued collective effort to give back to the community and make a difference to the lives of those around us.”
We hope you will all GET INVOLVED and support our partnership so we can reach our £50,000 target and grant magical wishes for brave and deserving children. Please ask your local hotel how you can support our partnership.
