London Marathon stars
Every year we are in awe of the amazing runners that complete the Virgin London Marathon. This year we cheered 17 of our supporters who raised a total of £25,000 for our Charity. What an amazing achievement! This will go a long way in helping families with children in hospital, as well as inspiring other supporters to take on this incredibly rewarding challenge. Thank you!
Volunteers help with Tooting spring clean
Fifteen volunteers from the McDonald’s UK Head Office visited our Tooting House in London to lend a helping hand with our spring deep clean! The families staying in the House came back from the ward to find everything squeaky clean and smelling fresh which was very comforting given the difficult time they’re going through while their children are in hospital. Thank you to our volunteers. Here are some photos from the day!
Gala Dinner raises record amount
On 21 March, our annual Gala Dinner took place at the beautiful Battersea Evolution venue in London! We greeted 850 guests, served delicious food and heard from the families we’ve helped. Everyone had an amazing time and the amount raised surpassed all our expectations. We’ve raised £235,000 - almost double the amount last year. Thank you to our amazing supporters, those who were present, as well as everyone else who is close to our cause! You can see the photos from the event here.
