Foundation visit Ronald McDonald House Fun Day

Liverpool FC Foundation visited Ronald McDonald House (RMDH) in Stanford earlier this week to join in with the charities’ Fun Day. The visit formed part of the Club's annual pre-season tour activity which sees the Foundation regularly visit and support local communities and charities.

Ronald McDonald House provides free 'home away from home' accommodation to families while their child is in hospital. Since 1974, RMHC has helped address families’ needs every day, with 305,000 volunteers and staff members and connections with medical communities around the world.

LFC Foundation coaches were joined by Reds Ambassadors Ian Rush and Gary McAllister who both took part in summer games with local children and their families.

Alongside the Club’s mascot, Mighty Red, Ian and Gary handed out LFC goodie bags to all the children, as well as posing for photographs and signing autographs.  
 
LFC Ambassador, Ian Rush, said: “It was an honour for me and Gary to visit these youngsters today and take part in the Ronald McDonald House Fun Day alongside the LFC Foundation.

"Dealing with illness can be an extremely difficult time so to be able to provide the youngsters and their families with some fun and football was really rewarding. We all had so much fun and I hope the children did too.”
 
Andrea Cooper, Head of Liverpool FC Foundation, said: “It was fantastic to be able to support Ronald McDonald House today as part of our pre-season tour International delivery.
 
“Supporting other charities to do more of their work, by using the unifying power of our club crest is vital to ensure that we have the greatest impact possible on people’s lives – both at home and across the world.”
