Roise Anna Arman-Hughes
Hello Ronald McDonald House, I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Ronald McDonald House Birmingham who helped my mum and me, when I was 2-month-old and up until now, I was extremely sick in early 2021 with several visits throughout the year. And we did not have to travel the same day and we could rest up the night before.
Family of Finlay Macdonald Cowan
The support and kindness shown by the staff of the Ronald McDonald House Edinburgh made a very difficult time more manageable for us and our child. We felt so lucky to be able to fully concentrate on loving and supporting our child through his illness and recovery in a comfortable space only a stone’s throw from the ward. Thank you for the huge difference you make to families supporting their sick children.

He is now a healthy happy 4 year old and my Nan loved to spend time with him in our garden. Ronald McDonald house kept us close at a really bad time and made that possible.

Every Christmas we donate to a charity instead of buying Christmas cards, this year we had to choose Ronald Mcdonald House in honour of Ellie-Morgan Sasha Abbey. She would have been 18 this December. One of the most beautiful souls to have existed in our community, but especially for her family. We are keeping every single family going through their own battle in our thoughts, always. All our love, The Taylor Family xxx

Always thankful for my stay in 2020 when I welcomed my beautiful Son Tommy into the world 11 weeks early and very poorly. During lockdown you made me feel safe and became a family. I’ve met so many amazing families here, now life long friends! Tommy is now at home and thriving with his Mummy and the support of the house at the very start of our long 15 month hospital-stay enabled me to stay positive for my little one and keep that optimism for Tommy’s health. Thank you so much for everything! Merry Christmas from Emily & Tommy T ❤️

St Anthony’s RC Primary School Year 3
The children in the class decided to wear their own clothes for their Christmas party instead of their school uniform. The amount donated (£30.20)was raised on the day and they decided that the Ronald Mcdonald’s houses for sick children were appropriate at this time of year since parents would find it difficult to stay in a hotel near the hospital. We would appreciate a letter of receipt for this donation.

Many Thanks to this wonderful organisation, who supported my nephew and his partner after the premature birth of their daughter Riley Florence O’Hara. Riley was born at 26 week, her parents stayed in the Ronald McDonald House at Kings in London, this allowed them to be constantly at her bedside in the following months. She is now a thriving 3 year old and we as a family say thank you and hope that we can help support another family in their time of need.

Alice Comben
My Husband and I stayed at RM Camberwell and also Evelina in August/September 2017 when our daughter was very unwell. Their services were invaluable and we were able to stay so close to her which we really appreciated. She was only 1 when she suffered a stroke and brain aneurysm so understandably we did not want to be far away at all. We live in Maidstone and the journey to and fro was just so long. Bethany is now 5 and suffers from left sided hemiplegia but she is the happiest and strongest little girl. She became the best big sister this year too and next week her School are participating in the RM PJ day for her which is so amazing! We are still due to attend RM Camberwell to put her bird on the wall however due to Covid this has been tricky. We try to fundraise when we can. Thank you and Merry Christmas 🙂 xx
