"By tackling the serious challenges raised by social exclusion, deprivation, ill-health and inequality, Sunbeams is reaching the unreachables."


– Annie Mawson MBE BBC Radio 4 Today Programme

"Annie and her Team are all that is good in a Charity - no extra expenses, no hangers-on, everybody playing their part, from the pie man to the Lord Lieutenant. Sunbeams is a wonderfully worthwhile cause. How lucky I am to have two healthy children and three healthy grandchildren.”


– Lord Archer of Weston-Super-Mare, Auctioneer for Sunbeams

"What an extraordinary tribute to your imagination, originality, verve and conviction - the most unusual, startling and inspiring tribute to the most important subject and the most deserving people."


– Rory Stewart OBE MP FRSL
