Give a family time together

When you have a child in hospital, every moment matters – help us give valuable time to families with children in hospital.

Families need time together

When you have a child in hospital, every moment you can spend together is important. Unfortunately, so much of this precious time is taken away. If your child needs specialist treatment, the best specialist hospital may not be close to home, which means time is taken up with travelling to and from the hospital, and still managing your life back at home. We need your help – to provide free accommodation in Ronald McDonald Houses for families, to keep them close to their children in hospital.

“We didn’t know if we would be in hospital for three weeks or three months and without the Ronald McDonald House, I’m not sure what we would have done. One of us wouldn’t have had those all important first few weeks with our new baby, and the other one wouldn’t have been able to spend precious moments with our sick little girl in hospital.”

How your donation can give a family time together:


£10 could ensure a family have a base for a day near to their sick child’s hospital bed – crucial time to relax and recuperate to be strong for their child

Night time

£35 could pay for a family to be accommodated in the House for a night just a moment from their child’s bedside – giving even more precious time with their child

Weekend time

£50 could provide a weekend when relatives and siblings could also come to the House and have vital fun, play, and relaxation time with the ill child

“When Lara started to recover from her stroke, she was able to come to the House most nights for dinner with us. We truly believe that being able to be together as a family aided her recovery.”
