HOW TO HELP
This is a chance for organisations – large and well known across the region, or smaller and local, to have a strong relationship with the House and actively make a difference by raising funds that may be supporting the cost of families staying with us and making more stays possible. It could also be very specific directed fundraising that makes a very visible impact in the house such as funding specific equipment in the kitchen and family social areas, or our lovely garden and children’s play area or sponsoring a bedroom for a year.
Fundraising Groups are a great way to get involved and it’s wonderful to become part of a group that raising funds to help our families and their kids stay together, close by, when a child and sibling is being treated at Alder Hey Hospital.
These Groups are a fun, relaxed, friendly and very social way of getting involved with Mac House. You might set a target for a year, organise and deliver your own fundraising activity which could be anything from collecting at a local supermarket, selling cakes from a stall at a local event, or helping out on one our own events. People of all ages, from all backgrounds, working or retired, come together to form a group that has one thing in mind – making a difference for Mac House and our families who cannot stay with us without your support.
“Foresters International members have thoroughly enjoyed getting together and supporting Mac House in a number of ways, most visibly has been our days spent revamping the lovely Mac House garden and doing some essential maintenance of the area. Via a grant available to our members from Foresters for charitable work, we have been able to make a difference you can really see first hand and it has been an absolute joy to get involved with this amazing charity” Foresters International
“In 2016 a number of us wanted to get involved in fundraising for Mac House but to be honest we were not really sure where to start. With help from the fundraising team we formed the ‘Mac House Liverpool Fundraising Group.’ We have added student members from Liverpool University and individuals who preferred to be part of a group rather than to fundraise individually. It’s a great success, and we have already organized several small events, supported a number of collections and have a lot of ideas in the pipeline. Plus, it’s REALLY enjoyable which is an added bonus.” Carl, Hannah, Tami, Jo, Kate, Val, Jean, Cath, Gill, Wendy

The Mac House Liverpool fundraising group recently hosted a bingo night for our familes. Lots of fun was had, and funds generated to help us to host more families at no cost to them. With 84 bedrooms at Mac House to support, fundraising is key to keeping the house running for our families.
