Our team in Dublin take a volunteering day out of the office to help cook for families at Ronald McDonald House Charity, Dublin.
We had a great morning preparing a hearty lunch which was perfect for the cold September day. Chili Con Carne was on the menu for the families at Ronald McDonald house, a haven that provides accommodation and a caring, supportive environment for families with children that are seriously ill in hospital.
We were inspired by the strength and resilience of these parents - with all their focus on caring for their very sick children - their own well-being is often a low priority, so it was a privilege to be able to do something as small as prepare a nutritious, hot meal for them.
Here's a few pics of our day in Ronald McDonald house - we will certainly be back.
