For the third year running, the Trace team traded spreadsheets for spatulas and deadlines for dishes, all in the name of a fantastic cause: Ronald McDonald House Charities UK. Some of us are parents ourselves, and we know the worry and stress that comes with having a child in hospital. That’s why Ronald McDonald House’s mission resonates so deeply with us – providing a warm, welcoming “home away from home” for families facing this difficult time.
This year’s adventure saw us rolling up our sleeves and heading to the Ronald McDonald House Kitchen in London. Laughter filled the air as we transformed the kitchen into a fiesta of sizzling fajitas and hearty bowls of chili con carne, specially prepared for the little ones. The aroma of spiced chicken, peppers, and onions a treat – offering care and support and a taste of normalcy amidst the medical challenges.
For the Trace team, this annual trip isn’t a corporate responsibility – it’s a personal commitment. We see the power of Ronald McDonald House firsthand and knowing we can bring comfort and smiles during a difficult time makes it rewarding for us to keep coming back year after year.
Every penny raised helps Ronald McDonald House Charities continue its vital work across the UK. Their 14 Houses offer families a haven of support, close to their children’s hospital wards. This proximity is invaluable, allowing families to focus on their child’s well-being without the added burden of travel and accommodation worries.

Together, we can ensure that no family faces the challenge of a sick child alone.
