Ronald McDonald House

Ronald McDonald House provides free accommodation for parents/carers of critically ill children being treated at Alder Hey. We opened 25 years ago and have accommodated over 25,000 families in our 84 family rooms. Our running costs are £700k pa and is raised totally by voluntary contributions.

Charity Registration No. 1008765


I chose this charity with the help of my sister, Amy.

Amy, Ian and my beautiful niece Ella have benefited from the facilities at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital during the past year and a half.

Ronald McDonald House provides free accommodation, with kitchen faclities and living area to assist, and provide some normality for parents and carers when children are patients at the hospital.

When visiting Ella during her stay last year, I was impressed at the facilities provided to Amy and Ian and it made a big difference for them being able to stay so close to Ella's ward and not have to worry about anything else aside from their daughter.

The House has a waiting list every night in excess of 20 families.

Thank you for your donations, they will be much appreciated.
