In May this year, the Moore family received the news no parent ever wants to hear – their 3-year-old daughter Grace was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. 

But after 133 nights in our Christchurch House, parents Paula and Alex Moore have found the love and strength they need to face their daughter’s medical battle.

This festive season we know our facilities will be filled with families like the Moores who call Ronald McDonald House their ‘home away from home’. Celebrating Christmas is often the last thing on their mind, while they are focused on their hospitalised child.

You can ensure these families get a Christmas gift they’ll never forget, by sponsoring a beautiful festive wreath. For $500, you will cover the cost of two nights’ accommodation, a Christmas feast, and a visit from Santa for a family staying at Ronald McDonald House South Island. Your name and a festive wreath, kindly donated by Novelli, will be hung on our Dining Room walls to be seen by all our families and visitors to the House and Southland Family Room.

You could consider holding a Christmas fundraiser or donating as a team to raise the money. We will be decorating the House Family Room on the 1st of December and would love to see your business or family name on the wreath. If this option does not work for you but you would still like to help, please get in touch.
