McDonald’s to donate 20p of each anniversary cake sale to its hospitals charity

Fast food chain McDonald’s is selling a birthday cake donut to mark its 50th anniversary of operating in the UK, with 20p from each sale going towards the Ronald McDonald House Charities UK, which supports families of children in hospital.

The fundraiser has also been created to mark the 35th anniversary of the charity, which operated in 14 areas and provides accommodation to families of ill children near to hospitals for them to visit swiftly.

“The Houses, located next to major hospitals, allow families to be by their child's bedside in a matter of moments, whilst maintaining a degree of normality during very difficult times,” said a spokeswoman.

Since the charity started operating more than 95,000 families have stayed in a Ronald McDonald House.

Its houses are located near to among other Alder Hey children’s hospital in Liverpool, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.

According to the charities register, Ronald McDonald House Charities had an annual income of £14.25m for the financial year ending December 2022. It has a 196 strong staff and is supported by 70 volunteers.
