In May we held our annual charity quiz and were delighted to raise more than £5,000 for Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity. The charity grants wishes to children aged from three to 18 who are living with serious or life-threatening illnesses.
The charity recently wrote to us to let us know that the money we raised enabled Rays of Sunshine to grant a very special wish for Caitlin. Caitlin is currently living with Mucopolysaccharidoses, a permanent and progressive disorder that affects physical abilities and organ functioning.
Caitlin’s greatest wish was to visit Disney World in Florida. With the help of the money we raised she was able to travel to Disney World with her family.
The above photo shows Caitlin and her sister Chloe at Disney World Florida being Forest Gump.
Thank you to everyone who supported the quiz. Details of next year’s event will be sent out in the new year.
Rays of Sunshine have contacted us again to share a lovely wish they granted for Jayden, who is five and lives in East Ham. With the help of the Metropolitan Police, Rays of Sunshine granted Jayden’s wish to be a policeman for the day. They even arranged for a custom police uniform to be made. You can read about Jayden’s wish and see pictures of him in his police uniform in the East London Advertiser here.
