School’s dress down day raises charity cash

School’s dress down day raises charity cash

Enterprising young fundraisers from Woodfall Primary School in Neston hand over a cheque for £180 to Ronald McDonald House Arrowe Park staff fundraiser Megan Owen last Wednesday (12 November).


The money was raised by members of RotaKids – a mini Rotary Club at Woodfall Primary School for children aged seven to 11 -  which held a school uniform-free day in October. As well as presenting a cheque to Ronald McDonald House Arrowe Park, which provides free ‘home away from home’ accommodation to families who have children at Arrowe Park Hospital, the pupils also brought games and toys for the House’s communal lounge where families can enjoy a bit of respite away from the hospital wards.

  5. Ronald McDonald House Charities relies on the generosity of supporters and fundraisers, including McDonald’s customers, without whom it would be unable to continue its work.  The Charity was founded in 1989 and in 2014 proudly celebrates 25 years of keeping families together.
