Ronald McDonald House Charities is an independent charity providing free ‘home away from home’ accommodation and support at specialist children's hospitals across the UK, enabling families to stay close to their child and maintain a degree of normal family life.

We support families while their child receives care and treatment in a specialist children's hospital by giving them a warm and welcoming place to rest their heads, just moments away from their child. Over the last 25 years we have helped tens of thousands of families during some of the toughest periods in their lives.

When a child is in hospital their family can often be faced with having to travel long distances each day and either pay for costly hotel rooms or sleep on a chair at their bedside. Our Houses provide families with a comfortable place to stay that's close to their child, giving them more time and energy to focus on their wellbeing.

There are currently 14 Ronald McDonald Houses across the UK, all just moments away from their respective children's wards. Our dedicated teams of staff and volunteers welcome families to stay for days, weeks and even years, and help them to feel as at home as possible.

The money raised donating your car will go towards the building of new Ronald McDonald Houses throughout the UK. However, if you would prefer to support a particular House, please let us know: info@rmhc.org.uk .
