Kayleigh and Gemma’s Snowdon Climb
At the beginning of May, Kayleigh and Gemma took on Snowdon to help support other families like theirs with a child in hospital.

“The fear of the unknown and worry while our baby was in intensive care was indescribable. Now imagine that with the worry of not knowing where you were going to stay! Ronald McDonald House gave us one less worry by giving us a home from home, somewhere to rest and collect ourselves while being so close to our brave baby.”

The Gasson’s 22 Mile Walk
At the end of May, The Gasson family and their team of friends and family took on a 22 mile sponsored walk for our home from home.

“Ronald McDonald House Bristol lift the burden of all the extra strain and stress that comes with having a child ill in hospital so that you can just focus on your child and being close together!
Following our 3 year old son losing the ability to walk suddenly, we found ourselves in Bristol Royal Hospital for Children with one of us commuting backwards and forwards to Gloucester daily. The pressures and logistics of daily life on top of wanting to be close too and worrying about our poorly child was very overwhelming!
In Gloucester I had found out alone that they had suspected Oliver of having a stroke and needed an emergency MRI, to hear that news alone and then have to phone Ash to tell him was extremely difficult! The thought of that happening again in Bristol and Ash being so far away was unbearable.
Then we found out about Ronald McDonald House Bristol and everything changed in an instance. It felt like an enormous weight had been lifted off our shoulders. It lifted a financial and emotional burden. We were then able to focus on Oliver and didn’t have to worry about anything else!
It is the most incredible charity and their wonderful work deserves our support!”
