Evelina London Children’s Healthcare is part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. It is one of the two specialist children’s hospitals in London, and they care for more than 95,000 children and young people every year in the hospital and in the community.
Most of the time, families spend a lot of money and travel a long way to get to their child’s hospital. These causes added-on stress to the families.
Ronald McDonald House Charities UK help families to cope better by providing support, comfort, and free family accommodation close to children’s hospitals so families can be by their child’s bedside in a matter of moments, whilst maintaining a degree of normal life and reducing emotional and financial strain.
On the 29th August 2019, the team behind First Business Water volunteered at Ronald McDonald House Charities to cook a meal for the families of the children at Evelina London Children’s Hospital. First Business Water’s team spent the evening preparing and cooking “Curry Dinner”, and many families enjoyed the home-cooked meal!
“We wanted to support these families and serving home-cooked meal would be a nice change for the families”- FBW
