PACIFIC were delighted to be one of the sponsors of the annual Ronald McDonald Houses charity golf day at exclusive Dalmahoy Country Club, on the outskirts of Edinburgh.
Our banners, stands and posters at the famous Halfway House on the course caught the eye, as scores of players from across the United Kingdom dusted off their clubs for the big day yesterday (July 23, 2019).
Ronald McDonald House Glasgow and Ronald McDonald House Charities UK came together for this event in support of families with a seriously ill child in hospital.
The charities provide accommodation for relatives of sick children, so they can be close to them 24 hours a day.
When children are having medical treatment in hospital, their families can often be faced with having to travel long distances each day and either pay for costly hotel rooms or sleep on a chair at their bedsides.
The houses provide a warm and welcoming place for relatives to put their heads down, safe in the knowledge they are only a stone’s throw away from their little loved ones.
The Dalmahoy event – which featured golf, fun and fundraising – followed the hugely successful Ronald McDonald Houses Scotland Ball in Glasgow in May, 2019.
It has been a momentous year for both Ronald McDonald House Glasgow and Ronald McDonald House Charities UK.
The Glasgow house has recently increased its capacity to 31 bedrooms and RMHC will soon be opening a new, 25-bedroom house in Edinburgh.
Together, they will support 1,000 families every year in Scotland.
