Ronald McDonald House Northern NSW relies on the community’s generosity to support families with sick or injured children. Thank you to everyone who has helped keep families close.



thank you Novascape & the Newcastle Community

The Newcastle community heeded a call from one of our resident families, and have totally transformed the large area at the back of our house, creating an amazing grassy play area for everyone to enjoy.

When Nathan Roper (whose story we featured in out last newsletter) put a call out on his Facebook page for donations of turf so he could re-turf the space himself, we were not ready for the outpouring of support and offers of assistance he received!

Within a couple of days, Novascape Landscaping had promised to project manage the entire job from start to finish – and the result has been amazing!

Trucking for sick kids

Thank you to the Newcastle Hunter Transport Awareness Group who recently selected Ronald McDonald House Northern NSW as a major beneficiary for the proceeds generated from the Newcastle Hunter Transport Awareness Day & Truck Expo.

The Expo will take place on 29 October 2017 and we'll keep you updated on the event.


Gosford Family Room refresh

It has been a long time wish list to better organize the Gosford Ronald McDonald Family Room living area and make the play space more homely, functional and child friendly. The last phase of the project was to make better use of the living area and make the play space, games and toys more accessible for the children and families.

This would not have been possible without the amazing Contribution by Virtual Joinery, who donated new custom built cabinetry and Taylor Made Solutions for donating their time and skills to install the new cabinets. Your generous work has totally exceeded our expectations and We (and our families) are so in love with our new living space, Thank You.

Mums supporting mums

New mums from across Maitland gathered for their monthly ‘Babes and Picnics’ catch up at Maitland Park last week, where they share stories, advice and friendship. Such a great community initiative! They also did a collection for families staying at Newcastle House, which we gratefully received on the day.
