We are 100% of the way to reaching our target of supporting families in our Houses over Christmas

Thank you for making a difference

We’re so grateful to our wonderful supporters for getting involved and helping to provide comfort to families over the Christmas period and into the future. Thanks to your support we raised £129,485 to help keep families close to their sick child.

Ronald McDonald House Charities UK wants to ensure every family can be near their ill child’s bedside when they are in hospital. Our dedicated House teams are there for families 24/7 to make sure our Houses, feel just like a ‘home away from home’.

Families staying in a House can maintain normal family life and be by their child’s hospital bedside in minutes if needed. As well as a private family bedroom, our Houses offer facilities that mean families are able to spend more time by their sick child’s bedside.

House teams make sure families are fully supported during their stay and that even though not at home over Christmas they can still celebrate in their temporary ‘home away from home’ with family.

Please donate to our 2021 Christmas Bedside Appeal and help ensure families can be near their sick child.
