We urgently need your help to transform our ‘home away from home’.

Get Involved

Everyone can get involved in fundraising to help us reach our £2 million target towards the project costs, and there are so many ways to do it. Whether you are one of our past families wanting to give back; an individual wanting to challenge yourself; a school looking for a charity to support; a business wanting to motivate your staff; or a group wanting to support a local cause. No matter how big or small, everyone’s efforts will be invaluable to the future families of Ronald McDonald House Alder Hey.

We’ve included some fun ideas below to give you some inspiration, but the possibilities are endless! If you have an idea you’d like to discuss, or would like some more tips and advice, we’d love to hear from you.
