Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Steve Burne - MD of AEW Architects - was diagnosed with cancer in May 2017 which was confirmed as terminal in October. 

In addition to Steve’s role at AEW, he has been closely involved with Ronald McDonald House Charities for 15 years and acted as Chair of the Manchester House Board of Governors since it opened 5 years ago. The Ronald McDonald House in Manchester supports families whose children are undergoing treatment at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital or St Mary’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The 60 bedroom House provides a free, welcoming place to stay. Each bedroom can accommodate up to four people and the House has communal living areas such as kitchens, playrooms and a garden. House staff are on hand to offer a listening ear and organise activities so families can take some time away from the hospital, to gather strength, but still be close to their child.

Steve’s experience as Chair of Ronald McDonald House in Manchester, the love for his own family and understanding of the pressures and stress through illness has resulted in a new resolve: an aim to raise £250,000 to convert three spaces in the Manchester House into larger 6 person family rooms and to do it in his lifetime. The rooms will be named in Steve’s honour.

Steve and his team of supporters have already raised a fantastic £221,905.62 and we want to do our bit to help him get to his target!

This time we are asking for £15 per ticket to attend the event - all proceeds will be donated to the charity and you will still receive 2 drinks on the night. If anybody would like to donate anything over and above the £15 then this page is open to accept any / all donations and there will also be an additional collection on the night.

I hope you will support us and the #steveburnerooms
