Ronald McDonald House South Island supports families when their child is in hospital in Christchurch and Invercargill. Their facilities provide more than a place to sleep – they are a place of comfort, compassion and convenience. Ronald McDonald House South Island takes care of the practical things in life so families can focus on their child who is staying in hospital. This helps reduce stresses like paying for a place to sleep near the hospital and organising family meals, while providing a friendly ear to listen on tough days.
Ronald McDonald House South Island is committed to building a three-bedroom Family Room inside Christchurch Hospital. The Family Room will be a welcoming, home-like space for families, just steps away from their children in the hospital. Markedly different than its medical surroundings, the Family Room provides a break from the stress of the hospital environment where they can relax, prepare a meal, have a snack, or stay overnight.
Barrer & Co assisted Ronald McDonald House South Island with the set up of this significant capital fundraising campaign. As part of this work we developed a capital campaign strategy and supported the Ronald McDonald House South Island team with the early stages of strategy implementation.
