Helping families stay together with McDonalds

Published October 20, 2016 by Bizzimummy

Everyone knows of McDonalds. The fast food restaurants that kids love and can be found in pretty much every town. However what many people know little about is some of the charity work that McDonalds does. 

The Ronald McDonald house charity  has been helping families for over 25 years. They are the UK’s leading provider of free family accommodation at NHS hospitals. The charity provide families with a free ‘home away from home’ which enables them to stay close by while their child is in one of their partnered children’s hospitals. Families can stay for as long as they need to.

There are 14 Ronald McDonald Houses across the UK, all located close to specialist children’s hospitals. The Houses are open 365 days a year and are equipped with everything you would find in a family home. Families can get a good night’s sleep, prepare their own meals and feel at home, knowing that they’re only a moments away from their child. 


McDonalds restaurants across the country are hosting a charity event this weekend (Saturday 22nd October) to raise funds for the houses. The day will take on a jungle theme and cuddly toys with a jungle theme will be on sale. These can be purchased at almost every McDonalds restaurant in the country and 100% of all proceeds will go to the charity. 


So I am asking you all, please pop into your local McDonalds this Saturday, take your family for a treat and purchase a toy or two. No parents ever expect their children to be so unwell or injured that they have to stay in hospital but if it was your child then surely you would be extremely grateful for a charity such as this. I know I would. 
As well as buying the toys, most restaurants also gave donation boxes to pop any loose change inside. 

Here is a video starring Jeff Brazier  who is the “Help keep families close” ambassador as well as a celebrity dad. This video shows exactly where your donations will go and the work the charity does.

I will most definitely be having lunch at McDonald’s on Saturday. The longest any of my children have spent in hospital is two nights which was hard enough. I cannot imagine the thought of my children having to stay alone in hospital which is why this charity deserves the support.
