Ronald McDonald House at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital has been providing accommodation totally free of charge for 21 years for the parents and carers of the most critically sick children who are in patients in Alder Hey.
With 84 rooms the house is the largest Ronald McDonald House in Europe. Annual running costs are £600,000, all of which has to be raised from voluntary donations.
To help the charity raise the funds it needs to do its valuable work, it has become part of our Unity lottery scheme.
Jan Thomas from Ronald McDonald House at Alder Hey said:
“Imagine having a seriously sick child, you would want the best possible treatment and that might mean travelling from another part of the country to somewhere where you would need to sleep, cook, wash and look after their brothers and sisters. Ronald McDonald House can provide all of this for as long as it takes, keeping families together at the most traumatic time of their lives.
”We are proud and privileged to work closely with the busiest children’s hospital in Europe and by supporting our lottery you will be helping us develop still further.”
Richard Dixon managing director of Sterling said:
“We are really pleased to be working with Ronald McDonald House at Alder Hey to help them raise much needed funds to continue their work. I hope people get behind the charity by signing up to Unity and giving themselves the chance of winning at the same time.”
