We Met A Charity CEO In A McDonald's Restaurant. Here's why.

Words by Harrison Read

Ella Joseph is the Chief Executive of Ronald McDonald House Charities UK. 

They provide free 'home away from home' accommodation for families with children in Hospital. 

This means that families can be by their child’s bedside in a matter of moments, whilst maintaining a degree of normal life and reducing emotional and financial strain. 

They rely on the generosity of fundraisers to help them support families in their Houses. Their vision is for every child in hospital to have their families close by, and to ensure families are fully supported in their Houses and remain actively involved in their child’s care.
