Working with charity is something we’ve always been passionate about, that’s why earlier this year we teamed up with British Children’s charity, Rays of Sunshine. We are in awe of the inspirational work Rays of Sunshine do with young children who have a life-limiting illness and we wanted to do what we could to help.
With 49,000 children and young adults living in the UK with serious or life-limiting illnesses, Rays of Sunshine formed to grant magical wishes to children, that will put smiles on their faces, even if just for a day. Whether a little one asks to meet their favourite celebrity or become a mermaid for the day, Rays of Sunshine works hard to make each individual wish come true. Not only this the charity hosts parties for little one’s in hospitals and events that allows the children to take a day off to have fun.
Since we joined Rays of Sunshine as an official partner in Spring we have hosted events, baked cakes and worked hard in head office to raise as much money to help. Not only that, every single child who has their wish granted receives one of our gorgeous personalised bears! But, we also need to thank you for supporting our charity collection, every item sold from our ‘hello sunshine’ range raised a pound for the charity, that is why we have added new designs to the collection for you to enjoy this autumn.
To coincide with this the launch of our adorable fox design we went along to Royal London Hospital with our ambassador Binky to gift the kids and enjoy the fun. The children and staff loved meeting Binky who gave out bears and posed for photos with everyone. The event Rays of Sunshine had put on was incredible and we were truly honoured to have been a part of it watching the children having so much fun!
