Give in Memory

We know that losing a loved one is devastating.  There may come a point in time when you wish to remember that loved one by doing something in their memory.

If you are remembering a loved one by collecting donations in their memory, we hope it brings you some comfort to know that by supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities you will be helping us to keep even more families near their sick children in hospital.

You can remember a loved one in several ways, for example by taking part in an event or by raising money in their memory.


Raise money with an online donation page

Many of our supporters choose to set up an online donation page for anyone who finds it easier to donate this way, or who cannot attend the funeral. You can do this by setting up a Just Giving page.

Take part in an event

You may wish to take part in an event such as a cycle or run. Our event section has lots of ideas for challenge events in which you can take part to remember a loved one.
