A JLS and Olly Murs concert has been announced as part of a charity fundraising event.

The two acts have both been confirmed as performing at this year's Sunshine Concert, held in aid of the charity Rays of Sunshine, which grants wishes for seriously ill children in the UK aged 3-18.

JLS star JB is an ambassador for the charity, he said: "JLS loves supporting the work of Rays of Sunshine and has met around 150 children through the charity in the last 12 months.

"Every one of these children has inspired us with their bravery. The Sunshine Concert will be a moving event for the performers and an amazing night of entertainment for music fans everywhere."

The event takes place at The Troxy, east London on Friday, March 11th.

Meanwhile, JLS and Olly Murs recently announced that they are to go on a UK summer arena tour together this year, starting at the Kingston Communications Stadium in Hull on June 10th.
