Gala Dinner 2020 – CANCELLED
Building Bridges, keeping families connected and together
Friday 20 March 2020
In light of the recent coronavirus (Covid – 19) outbreak in Asia and Europe, RMHC UK has made the difficult decision to cancel the London Gala Dinner which was to take place at the InterContinental London – The O2 on Friday 20 March.
This decision hasn’t been made lightly. We have taken guidance from our own Board of Trustees, as well as the McDonald’s Coronavirus Global Working Group. They have advised that is inappropriate for large numbers of McDonald’s employees, Suppliers and Franchisees to attend events in public places, within uncontrolled environments. This is now being actioned through the McDonald’s business both globally and across the UK.
We are naturally very disappointed to have to come to this decision, and will be making direct contact with all businesses, stakeholders and other guests who were supporting the event.
Please note these are exceptional circumstances. Thank for your ongoing support and we look to bringing the London Gala Dinner back next year.
Jon Haward – Executive Director, RMHC UK

About Ronald McDonald House Charities UK
At Ronald McDonald House Charities we provide free ‘home away from home’ accommodation at specialist children’s hospitals across the UK, enabling families to stay close to their child and maintain a degree of normal family life.
We support families while their child receives care and treatment in a specialist children’s hospital by giving them a warm and welcoming place to rest their heads, just a moment away from their child. Over the last 30 years we have helped tens of thousands of families during some of the toughest periods in their lives.When a child is in hospital their family can often be faced with having to travel long distances each day and either pay for costly hotel rooms or sleep on a chair at their bedside. Our Houses provide our families with a comfortable place to stay that’s close to their child, giving them more time and energy to focus on being together.
