McDonald’s in Aberdeen have raised more than £55,000 for a new facility for sick children.
Three McDonald’s restaurant in Aberdeen have together raised £55,693 for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
The money will go towards a 25-bedroom Ronald McDonald House – a free “home away from home” accommodation for families with children in hospital.
The restaurants raised the sum by adding the 5p charge for their brown food bag.
Based in Edinburgh, the new facility will be helpful for families who live far from the city and need somewhere nearby to stay while their child receives treatment.
Craig Duncan, who owns and operates eight McDonald’s restaurants across the north of Scotland, said: “For the last four years, we have been proud to contribute the bag tax money from the restaurants to the building of this important facility.”
