McDonalds Bucket Collection
 
Representatives from McDonalds will be around the ground prior to Saturday’s fixture collecting on behalf of Ronald McDonald House.

Ronald McDonald Houses enable families to maintain a degree of normal life while their child is undergoing medical treatment in partnered specialist children’s hospitals across the UK.

RMH give our families a warm and welcoming environment within which they can stay for as long as they need – be it a matter of days, months or even years. 

Houses are equipped with everything you would expect to find in your own home including bedrooms, a kitchen and communal areas.  Where possible they also have quiet spaces for children to do their school work and for parents to work remotely – in this way RMH ensure families can still operate together, as they would at home. Families can cook, clean, rest and be together, all the time knowing that they are only moments away from their child in hospital.

Having a sick child can impact families across all areas of their lives. Time, money, stress, loss of education and loss of earnings are but a few of the ways in which families can be affected by their child being cared for in hospital. We work with families to allow them to focus on supporting their child and do our utmost to lessen the other stresses. 

Children that require specialist medical care can often be in hospital for months or even years at a time. With the help of our supporters we enable families to stay together during these times so that as much normality as is possible can be maintained. We believe families together are stronger.
