About Ronald McDonald House Charities

The Ronald McDonald House provides accommodation care and support for 20 families every night while their seriously ill children are inpatient or receiving care in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital.

The House enables families to stay together so that they can be with their sick child at what is a very traumatic time for them all.

The first,16 bedroom, Ronald McDonald House is situated on the grounds of Our Lady’s Hospital and our smaller 4 bedroom House is directly across the road at St Mary’s Drive.

Many families travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. Often, it can be a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. For children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mum and dad close by for love and support.  Ronald McDonald House program provides a Home for families so they can stay close by their hospitalised child at very little cost.  The House works on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest.

Family Fun Day - Rosie & Jim Chicken ProductsOur Family Fun Day took place in August again this year – a day for all our families to come together and celebrate in LauraLynn. It is one of the most special days here in our children’s hospice.

This year our theme was Superheroes and Princesses, with some amazing costumes on the day from kids and adults alike!

After the overwhelming success of this event last year, Rosie & Jim generously sponsored this event for us again, ensuring we could make this fabulous day possible for all our families.

Some lovely photos of Hank with, Yoko, who is being minded by his puppy raiser, Bernadette, for a few days. He is really enjoying himself with his new friend. Training is going well for him. He is finding his independence and displaying a better temperament each week.
