Burton Mail - - News -

BUR­TON and Swadlin­cote branches of Mc­Don­ald’s have raised funds to help fam­i­lies stay closer to their sick chil­dren.

A cam­paign en­ti­tled Keep Fam­i­lies Close has been run­ning across Stafford­shire, Le­ices­ter­shire, Der­byshire and War­wick­shire, rais­ing £4,000.

This has been led by the Ron­ald Mc­Don­ald House Char­i­ties, the restau­rants char­ity arm, to build and run cen­tres across the United King­dom for ac­com­mo­da­tion for the fam­i­lies of chil­dren be­ing treated in hos­pi­tal.

The fam­i­lies are able to stay close to young­sters as they un­dergo treat­ment.

Bur­ton’s Mc­Don­ald’s restau­rant, in Sta­tion Street, held events in­clud­ing a Hal­loween-themed dress-up, apple bob­bing, cake sales, tombola and raf­fles to raise cash for the cause.

Craig Roberts, the area man­ager for Mc­Don­ald’s, said: “we are de­lighted to have raised this money to sup­port such a great cam­paign.”
