I met the lovely Natasha Brame at a virtual networking breakfast. She is the Community Fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities. We connected for a blog because I am passionate about supporting children and families.
Always wanted to try something daring and different?
In 2022, we are hosting a series of Ice Walk Challenges, with seven locations across the UK to choose from. You will be specially trained to walk across broken glass and experience the barefoot sensation of walking on ice. The Ice walk is made up of hundreds of broken bottles which are put into a frame that you walk across. It takes approximately one minute for each person to walk safely across and a training session is run before each session. It’s fun and great for everyone to take part with the minimum age to participate is 10 and no maximum age limit. Registration is free, however everyone taking part must agree to raise a minimum sponsorship of £100.
UK; Edinburgh, Warrington, Cardiff, Birmingham, Oxford, Central London and Brighton.

About Ronald McDonald House Charities UK
Having a child in hospital is a frightening time for families. The nearest specialist hospital may be hours away. Where is there to sleep or get food to eat? Ronald McDonald House Charities UK (RHMC UK) is here to help. We provide free ‘home away from home’ accommodation to families with a child in hospital at one of our 12 Houses across the UK. Our Houses are close to specialist paediatric hospitals, enabling families to be by their child’s bedside in a matter of moments. Every year we help 6,000 families stay close to their child in hospital.
Where the money goes
All the money raised from the Ice Walk will go towards providing families with a home away from home, when their child is in hospital. It costs just £25 to accommodate a family for a night so by raising the £100 sponsorship target, you will be providing 4 nights of accommodation for a family.
More to books…
McDonald’s sponsors Ronald McDonald House Charities. I love the initiative at the moment where you can choose a book instead of a toy with the Happy Meal.
