Staff at McDonald’s in Corby will be wearing wacky trousers at work on Saturday (October 25) to help raise funds for charity.

They will be taking part in a national campaign to celebrate 25 years since Ronald McDonald House Charities was established in the UK.

Between 1pm and 2pm, McDonald’s restaurants across the UK will donate £1 from every transaction to the charity.

Ronald McDonald House Charities provides free accommodation for families with children in hospital.

There are 14 across the UK and last year they helped more than 7,000 families stay close to their children in hospital.

Glyn Pashley, McDonald’s franchisee who owns two restaurants in the area said: “I’m incredibly proud of all the work McDonald’s has done with Ronald McDonald House Charities for 25 years now. It’s great that we’re able to promote and support the fantastic work that the charity does to keep families together during difficult times.”

Members of the public have also been showing their support for Ronald McDonald House Charities by uploading a family selfie at www.makearealdifferenceday.co.uk using the hashtag #selfie4RMHC.

A selection of photos will then be chosen to appear in lights on the McDonald’s London Piccadilly Circus digital billboard.
