Ronald McDonald House partners with Liverpool Festival for Family Day Fundraiser

RONALD McDonald House has confirmed a family day partnership with Liverpool Celebrates Mathew Street Festival.

The festival has also announced it will welcome families to the final day (Monday 26th August) of the four-day bumper event at the Pier Head to aid a complete refurbishment at Ronald McDonald House Alder Hey in Liverpool.

Ronald McDonald House, known as MacHouse, provides free accommodation to families with critically ill children in hospital. Ronald McDonald House Alder Hey is more than 30 years old and requires an urgent, major refurbishment to improve family support and ensure the long-term future of the accommodation.

The new partnership with Ronald McDonald House will see Liverpool Celebrates support the charity by fundraising via various channels for the whole weekend.

Ronald McDonald House Charities UK Senior Corporate Partnerships Manager, Janet Pennington, said:

“We are delighted Liverpool Celebrates has partnered with our charity as we work towards a major refurbishment of our Alder Hey House, ensuring thousands of local families with a child in hospital have a comforting ‘home away from home’ to stay in, completely free-of-charge.

“The festival is set to be an iconic event and the partnership shows a true Liverpool spirit of compassion and generosity to local people and charities.

The final day of the festival culminates with a specially curated Cavern Club Takeover: a celebration of artists who have performed at the Cavern over the decades, including Dios Salve A La Reina, the legendary Queen tribute band, as well as tributes to The Beatles, Elton John, The Who and Adele. There will also be activities and entertainment for children and families.

Liverpool Celebrates Festival is set to attract thousands of visitors to the city and will provide a huge boost to the local economy, shining a light on the world-famous musical heritage of Liverpool.
