Staff from Medowie Munchkins Creche and Plus Fitness took part in the ‘Meals From The Heart’ program run through Ronald McDonald House in New Lambton.

The volunteers got together to cook breakfast for forty people staying at the house, giving them a small helping hand to take pressure of their medical journeys with their children.

The Ronald McDonald House caters to families who have children undergoing treatment at the John Hunter Children’s Hospital to stay with them.

Our Medowie team of volunteers cooked a delicious feast for the families, consisting of Bacon, Eggs, Rolls, hash browns, fruit salad, yoghurt and Juice.

The team also made slices to be left in the fridge as snacks for the families.

Tammy Procter from Munchkins Creche told News Of The Area, “We had so much fund, and will definitely be back to do it again!”

“Big thanks to Medowie Meats for supplying the bacon, Sportz Cafe for supplying the fruit salad and Coles Medowie for providing a $50 voucher to buy everything else.”

The team were also given a tour of the facility, which includes seventeen ensuite rooms and four separate suites for families with low immunity, communal kitchen, laundry room, two play areas, and a large outdoor area with barbecue, where the team provided their breakfast.

Tammy said, “They unfortunately have to turn an average of thirty people a week away, so they have plans and dreams of extending their facility soon.”

If your community group would like to volunteer your time like these two groups have done, you can contact Newcastle Ronald McDonald House on (02) 49214733.
