Match Day Sponsor: Ronald McDonald House (RMHC) ACT and South East NSW
Ronald McDonald House Canberra gives seriously ill children the greatest gift: their families. Their warm and welcoming home provides the whole family with a comfortable place to stay and peace of mind knowing they can stay together at Centenary Hospital for Women and Children.
Ronald McDonald House Canberra is an independent charity that relies on the work of its volunteers and financial support from individual and corporate donations.
Without these generous contributions, they would be unable to keep their doors open to families in need 365 days a year. Thanks to the public, they have been able to continually expand their operations to help more families and communities in Canberra and the surrounding area.

Making this donation will help Ronald McDonald House Charities, providing families in the ACT area and South East New South Wales with warm and welcoming places to stay, get help or relax and recharge, while going through the difficult journey of childhood illness.
