A House to Relish!

Topping Out

Ronald McDonald House Manchester celebrated its Topping Out with a couple of very special guests. Sir Geoff Hurst and Sir Bobby Charlton attended to show their support for the new House.

When it is completed in April next year it will provide a 'home away from home' environment for families who need to stay close to their children who are in-patients in our Children's Hospital and Saint Mary's.

The house is being built by Ronald McDonald House Charities and will provide 60 en-suite bedrooms, communal lounges, kitchens, dining areas, playrooms, laundry facilities, a teenager room and a quiet room over five floors.

Many families have to travel to our site from across North West, the UK and even from around the world so that their children can receive specialist treatment. The House will also be available to families coming to the hospital for day care, for example those whose children are receiving chemotherapy or renal dialysis.

It will be the fifteenth Ronald McDonald House in the UK.

The House is costing £7.5 million to build with an additional £500,000 a year in running costs, totalling £8 million in the first year.

Topping Out events traditionally celebrate a building reaching its highest point and this was the case with our House as we were recognising the completion of the roof.
