Manchester facility celebrate Charity milestone with Mad Hatter's Tea Party
CAPTION: Eva Fairley enjoys her afternoon at a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at Ronald McDonald House Manchester – the free ‘home away from home’ accommodation for the families of children being treated at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
A special guest appearance by magician Stevie Mandini as well as face painting, party games and food were all part of the fun at the tea party held on Saturday afternoon (6 September) at the House. The get-together was part of a series of special events called ‘Share Your Moment’ that will be held throughout September to celebrate 25 years of Ronald McDonald House Charities – the independent charity that provides a place to stay for 7,000 families each year at or near hospitals across the UK.
Ronald McDonald House Manchester is one of 14 Houses run by the independent charity and was the second House to bring together families past and present to celebrate the anniversary.

2. Ronald McDonald House Manchester is one of 14 Houses in the UK run by Ronald McDonald House Charities, an independent charity which provides free ‘home away from home’ accommodation at hospitals across the UK. It enables seriously ill children to have their families close by when they are undergoing treatment and allows them to maintain a degree of normal family life.
3. Ronald McDonald House Charities opened in 1989 and last year helped support over 7,000 families with children in hospital. The Charity, which this year celebrates 25 years of keeping families together, relies on the generosity of supporters and fundraisers, including McDonald’s customers, without whom it would be unable to continue its work.
