To celebrate 30 years of Ronald McDonald House Alder Hey, we are challenging #Team30 to raise £30,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities UK.
Ronald McDonald House Alder Hey is located in the grounds of the world famous Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and has provided ‘home away from home’ accommodation to thousands of families with children receiving care and treatment at the hospital since opening in 1993.
At the beginning of December 2021, 14-year-old James, from Ellesmere Port on the Wirral, became poorly with high temperatures and lethargy. His condition worsened and in early January, the teenager was rushed to hospital after losing consciousness at home and having suffered violent seizures.
“Before James was hospitalised and I was offered a room at the Ronald McDonald House, I had no idea what the facility provides families in my position. I arrived with just the clothes that I was wearing; I hadn’t even brushed my hair. I was welcomed with open arms and the staff let me know that everything was going to be. I will never forget that first greeting and the way in which the staff wrapped their arms around me.”
James’ mum, Georgia
