Keogh helps Kelmscott kids on McHappy Day

07 August 2018

Local Member of Parliament Matt Keogh lent a hand at the Kelmscott McDonalds before his town hall meeting in Langford on Saturday afternoon.

McHappy Day is the largest annual fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), which helps provide a home away from home for families of seriously ill or injured children while theyre treated at a nearby hospital.

Money raised for RMHC on McHappy Day goes towards supporting the work of Ronald McDonald House, including Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, Ronald McDonald Retreats and the Ronald McDonald Learning Program.

Unfortunately many Ronald McDonald Houses across the country have wait lists and fundraising efforts like McHappy Day play a critical role in helping RMHC reduce these lists.

This year Ronald McDonald House Charities has a target of $4.1 million, and I happily played my part in helping them achieve their goal.

In my last job I did some cooking with work colleagues at Ronald McDonald House, so Im really happy to continue supporting this great charity by selling burgers to raise money.

Recent stats have shown our community to be one of the most generous in the nation and I saw that on display at McDonalds today, Mr Keogh said

Thank you to everyone who came down bought a Big Mac, a pair of socks or donated on the day to support this worthy cause.

You can also donate directly to Ronald McDonald House Charities by heading along to to support their great work in Western Australia.
