Our families arrive to stay with us at one of the worst times in their lives. With the immense stress of having a child in hospital, the last thing they need is the extra pressure of worrying about where they will stay, and how they will pay for that. At Ronald Mcdonald House Liverpool we take away all of that worry, and give families and carers the space to concentrate on their child.
Your £100 donation of ‘A Hug For Our House’ will provide a home from home and support for a family to stay with us for as long as they need to, while their child is poorly. Our staff are here to listen when a shoulder to cry on is needed, to advise, and to help with navigating life away from home. We can support our families and carers with food and meals, and offer some respite for siblings with our regular play sessions. A hug for the house is real wrap around support from the beginning of a stay until the family leaves us.
Every year Ronald McDonald House Liverpool welcomes over 2000 families of critically ill children who are patients at Alder Hey Hospital into our home from home accommodation. We need to raise £700,000 each year so these families can stay with us free of charge in one of the 84 rooms for as long as their child is in hospital. It’s supporters like you who ensure that no family is separated from their child, or each other, at this difficult time.
You’ll receive an email to acknowledge your donation, as well as a downloadable gift certificate to share with them. All donations received from our virtual gift campaign will support the core running of the house, ensuring that families are kept together without worrying about the cost.
