Lindsey, Hannah and Michelle’s 5k of Inflatables
Lindsey, Hannah and Michelle took on 5k of Inflatables in Bath at the beginning of the month in memory of Lindsey’s daughter. Lindsey and her family and friends have been fantastic supporters of our charity since their stay in the house and we are so grateful for their continued support.

“I chose to take part in the Bath 5k Inflatable run as I wanted to help other families, to give something back to RMH and also because it would have been our daughter Evie’s 10th birthday this year.
We stayed at the house in 2011 for a few weeks when Evie was born. Being able to support the house keeps her memory alive and I look forward to taking part in many more events in the future.”

Chantelle’s Puddletown Plod
Chantelle took on the Puddletown Plod half marathon at the beginning of the month to help raise vital funds for families in need.

Jane’s Afternoon Tea
Jane held a wonderful afternoon tea with friends and family in her back garden on a beautiful sunny day as a way of saying thank you after her nephew and his family used our house earlier this year.

Neil’s Yorkshire Ultra Challenge
Neil, Wayne, Andrew, Baden and David all took on the Yorkshire Ultra Challenge as a way to say thank you for the help Neil and his family received whilst his daughter was in hospital here in Bristol.

“At the most difficult time of our lives, they provided my wife and I with sanctuary in the form of free accommodation close to the hospital. At a time when you can’t even begin to contemplate the enormity of the situation, the last thing any parent needs to face is finding a place to rest, and with the potentially catastrophic financial consequences of having to fund this. The Ronald McDonald House in Bristol has simple, clean accommodation, with en suite shower facilities and a communal kitchen, for parents with seriously ill children in hospital. I honestly don’t know how we would have coped without it, especially since, due to Covid restrictions, my wife and I weren’t even allowed in the hospital together.”
