Our students have been lending a helping hand at Ronald McDonald House in Grafton – a key component of the College’s Community Service Programme.

On Thursday 11 August, seven girls from Middlemore House cooked up a storm for the families staying at Ronald McDonald House. There were some delicious items on the menu for the evening, including cheesy nacho and cupcakes.

Lucy Rasmusen (Year 13, Middlemore), says volunteering at Ronald McDonald House is an experience she enjoys thoroughly.

“This is my second time volunteering here,” she says. “It’s a lot of fun and it’s super nice to see the families really enjoying the meals that are prepared each time. 

Reverend Warner Wilder says he is very proud of the girls for putting their hearts and souls into this initiative. 

“One of the most important things about this is that we’re actually really helping families that are going through a difficult time – their kids are in hospital, they’re away from home, it’s tough. We’re pleased to be helping out in any way we can.”

King’s College has been supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities for three years now.
