Ronald McDonald House Charities has been nominated as RDT Office Solutions Group Ltd’s chosen charity of 2016.
Each year, explained company CEO Derek Russell, the team at RDT selects a charity to support. “This year we’re proud to be supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities who work tirelessly to keep families with children who require care close to each other,” he added.
Families aren’t always able to stay at general hospitals with their children. That’s why Ronald McDonald House Charities has developed an expansive network of Chapters all across the UK. The facilities enable families to stay with their children whilst they receive the care and support needed.
Members of RDT, along with a cast of key partners including Xerox, will embark upon a 560 mile tour de force. The team will hit the starting blocks in Glasgow on 20th September, ending in Brighton on the 25th. They’ll take pit stops at Ronald McDonald Houses along the route.
Mr Russell said RDT had been motivated into action after a team member’s family received support from a Ronald McDonald House.
“The choice this year was an easy one,” he said. “These fantastic programmes give families a place that feels like home; a place where children can be happier; a place where families stay together as a unit at trying times.”
RDT crosses the finish line
In 2015, RDT crossed the London to Paris bike ride finish line. The 100 mile trek generated over £7,000 for Haven House.
The team now plans to step things up by cycling from Glasgow to Brighton in support of Ronald McDonald House.
Mr Russell said the “number one objective for 2016 is to beat last year’s total and raise over £10,000 for Ronald McDonald House”.
“We’re also having a charity golf day for customers and suppliers later in September. Time to oil the bike cogs and spruce up the golf clubs.”
