Future Rays throws support behind Rays of Sunshine charity initiative

Published on: 28th May 2020

The ROS Toyz campaign aims to raise the spirits of seriously ill children by fundraising for toys and gifts. 

Future Rays, a committee of young professionals keen to make the world a better place, has announced its support for Rays of Sunshine, a UK-based charity that brightens the lives of seriously ill children by granting wishes and organising events and outings for children undergoing hospital treatment.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, much of the charity’s work has been stymied, and now it is calling on the toy community for assistance.

The new ROS Toyz campaign aims to help seriously ill children by raising funds to purchase toys and games for delivery to hospitals all around the country,
including GOSH, St George’s Hospital, the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and Addenbrookes. The charity hopes to raise £10,000 to purchase 1,500 toys, which will go to more than 500 vulnerable and poorly kids.

Readers can support the campaign either by donating directly by clicking here, or by purchasing a toy (or two) from the ROS Toyz Amazon wishlist which can be sent straight to the children. Readers opting for the latter are asked to contact Rays of Sunshine to confirm the best delivery address.

The charity stated: “On behalf of Rays of Sunshine and the children, families and hospitals they help, thank you in advance for your generous support.”
