Little Mix dazzle dangerously ill children with latest Rays of Sunshine project
Little Mix are having quite the week – first protesting persecutions of the LGBT+ community in the Middle East, and now bringing joy to the lives of gravely ill children in the UK.
The girl group (consisting of 25-year-old Perrie Edwards, 27-year-olds Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and 26-year-old Jade Thirlwall) are proud ambassadors for Rays of Sunshine – a charity that aims: “to brighten the lives of children who are living with serious or life-limiting illnesses, between the ages of 3-18, across the United Kingdom.”
Jesy, Leigh-Anne, Jade and Perry took time out of their hectic touring schedule to meet some of their young fans in the company of the charity – and revelled in their ambassador status on social media on Tuesday.
Taking to Instagram , the band expressed their joy while sharing a batch of photographs of themselves alongside a string of youngsters.
“We LOVED meeting these brave and inspiring children at our @raysofsunshinecc wish day,” the band gushed in a statement.
“We’re honoured to be ambassadors for this amazing charity, thanks for having us,” they added.
The charity were also pleased – and revealed the girls had made a huge impact on the children they met.
“Thank you SO much to our incredible ambassadors @littlemix for helping us grant 12 magical wishes this week,” the charity said in an Instagram post of their own.
“These girls are beautiful inside and out and they regularly give up their time to help us grant wishes for many of our #wish children,” the charity explained.
“They are all true rays of #sunshine and we couldn’t be more grateful for their support!” they added.
Little Mix first became ambassadors for the charity in 2017 – revealing at the time: “It’s always the highlight of our day to meet so many brave and inspiring families and we’re so excited to continue working with the charity.”
Meeting their young fans with the charity is not the only good will the girls have expressed this week.
On Sunday night, they sparked cheers of support from an audience in Dubai when they performed in front of an LGBT+ flag – with homosexuals frequently being jailed in the Middle Eastern country.
The move was praised by fans – but might land the ladies in hot water due to the laws in Dubai.
