Little Mix have been named as ambassadors for Rays of Sunshine, a children’s charity which grants wishes to those aged three to 18 years old, who are living with a serious or life-limiting illness.
Announcing the news on social media, Rays of Sunshine said: “We are SO excited to announce Little Mix have become Ambassadors! They’ve been so generous in giving up their time to help us grant many magical wishes for seriously ill and very deserving children across the UK.
“We can’t wait to work together in the future to continue bringing smiles to so many brave and inspiring families. Welcome to the Rays of Sunshine family!”

Little Mix shared the same image on Twitter, saying that “It was such an honour to meet so many brave and inspiring families at our Rays of Sunshine wish day. Thank you Rays of Sunshine for the opportunity and for the incredible work that you do.”
The girlband, made up of Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall, join the likes of Craig David and Olly Murs, who are also ambassadors for the charity. Little Mix previously headlined Rays of Sunshine’s 2015 concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
Little Mix are no strangers to philanthropic work, using their platform to raise awareness and funds for a variety of good causes. Over the years they have worked with BeatBullying, Children in Need, Sport Relief, Cancer Research UK and many more organisations.
Most recently, Jade donated some of her old clothes to Empire Preloved in order to raise funds for Cancer Connections, a charity which she is the patron of. She has also done a lot of work with Stonewall UK.
We love that the Little Mix ladies use their platform to support important causes and we look forward to seeing them continue spreading light and love into the world.
