LETTER: Help us to raise money for house

A bedtime story from mum or dad is a precious moment, especially for a child in hospital far from home.

Ronald McDonald House Brighton would like to invite your readers to help create a bedtime story set in our local area to raise awareness and funds for our charity. As you may know, we rely on the generosity of the public to provide free ‘home away from home’ accommodation for lots of families each year who have children in hospital nearby. We are able to ease the burden and keep families together when they need it most.

Our aim is to involve our supporters as much as possible in the creation of our story. Readers can visit our website and suggest all sorts of content, such as character names and even a dedication in our cover page, that will be considered for inclusion in our e-book. The e-book will be made available to download free in October but there will be an opportunity to make a donation.

Ronald McDonald House Charities is able to provide support across the UK thanks to the kindness of people and businesses in local communities. However, we want to do more and our mission is to provide accommodation at every specialist children’s hospital across the UK.

We hope that your readers will get involved via our website at www.rmhc.org.uk/stories and look forward to seeing what fun and creative ideas they come up with.
