Social Distancing


The Young Entrepreneurs' Academy has selected Grief Encounters Spread a Smile as their two chosen charities for 2024. 

Rays of Sunshine was set up in 2003 to brighten up the lives of children with serious and life-limiting conditions aged between 3 and 18 across the United Kingdom. The charity grants individual wishes, hospital ward wishes and hosts outings and events for large groups of seriously ill children. From meeting their favourite Star Wars character to playing the bagpipes, Rays of Sunshine endeavours to make a difference.

Rays of Sunshine receives no government funds and relies on the kind support of the general public and companies.
