A FEW OF OUR FABULOUS FUNDRAISERS
We receive fantastic support from thousands of people all over the UK. A few of our supporters are featured below.
- Name: Rachel Moorey
- Age: 0
- Profession: Dental Student at University of Bristol
- Fun fact: Since inheriting a second hand sewing machine I enjoy shopping in Fabricland and coming up with new and unusual projects!
In December my Godson tragically passed away, aged just 13 months, after being in a traffic accident. While he was receiving emergency treatment in Birmingham Children's hospital, Ronald McDonald House Birmingham offered a place to stay for his family so they could all be with him and say their goodbyes.
I wanted to do something in Freddie's memory and so I organised a team of fellow Dental students along with family and friends to join me in running the Bristol 10k in May. It was hard work but we all finished in one piece and with some very good times too. My brother, a Crystal Palace supporter, even ran in a rival Brighton shirt as a bet to raise more money!
My advice to others would be to get all your family and friends involved to help fundraise, without their support it would have been much harder on my own. Making a JustGiving page and sharing through Facebook and via email was also really helpful.
- Name: John Kiely
- Age: 0
- Profession: McDonald's Franchisee
- Fun fact: My team, The Cross Cheaping Cheetahs, raised £3121 for the Charity, running in The 2017 Coventry Half Marathon.
This is the fourth year that my team, The Cross Cheaping Cheetahs, have run the Coventry Half Marathon. It all started because as a new Franchisee back in 2013, I wanted to do something that would challenge myself and my team and raise money for the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham. A 13.1 mile run certainly ticked those boxes!
During the four years since, we have seen our team grow as I have taken on more stores, and we’ve had all sorts of people join us. The 2017 event was fantastic, the sun shone, we had a lot of eager participants amongst the 3,500 runners and 1000 kids in their own race, and great support from the Birmingham House! Everyone went home safely, with a medal in hand and heartfelt thanks for participating.
Ronald McDonald House Charities is a great charity that needs continuous support from as many people as possible. Having seen the work they do in Birmingham to support families with seriously ill children in hospital, it does spur me on to achieve fund raising targets, whilst also putting people together to embrace a team spirit, sense of achievement and pride. I would encourage anyone to join any of the teams (including mine) that are fundraising, or as an individual to think of something that you have always wanted to do to challenge yourself and raise money in the process.
- Name: Billy Palmer

- Profession: Self employed photographer covering the South East
- Fun fact: I've been told I look better as a woman than a man! Haha!
I'm in the process of spending an entire year in fancy dress as a way of thanking all those involved in the care of my late niece!
Ronald McDonald House Charities gave my sister accommodation enabling her to be at her daughters side at all hours, the level of care and support given by the Charity along side that of the doctors and nurses is invaluable.
"My Crazy Year" is my way of saying thank you to them whilst raising money so they can continue to help others.
My advice is, if you can think of it you CAN do it.. Be bold, be brave and remember the reasons you want to help. If I can wax my legs and be a princess, you can jump from a plane or spend a day as an elephant.
