In memory of Oliver Jones

Born: 28/05/2013 - Passed away: 05/03/2015

On 5th March 2015 our brave little boy Oliver William Jones lost his battle for life and in his memory we would like to sponsor a bedroom at Ronald McDonald House Birmingham.

Oliver was an absolute fighter and fought so much including prematurity, necrotising enterocolitis, a small bowel and liver transplant and GVHD.

Throughout his time at Birmingham Childrens Hospital we were very fortunate to have the amazing facility that is Ronald McDonald House which provided us a home from home where we could stay each night, safe in the knowledge we were only a few minutes away from Oliver.  We were able to stay here as a family, and try and keep some normality like cook a sunday dinner.  When Oliver was well enough to leave the ward, we were able to take him back to Ronald McDonald House for the afternoon and we cherished these times away from the hospital.

Without Ronald McDonald House we would have faced astronomical hotel bills, or worse still a 140mile round trip each day.

For people who dont know, Ronald McDonald House is basically a hotel room, but with communal kitchen facilities on every floor meaning you could cook a meal.  Each floor also has a room such as a play room, TV room, games room and library.  Our daughter loved it and made some very good friends there! 

Ronald McDonald House relies solely on donations, and is such an amazing charity.  Our last stay there was almost 8 months so really did become a second home.  It costs Ronald McDonald House £25 per family per night and receives no funding from Birmingham Childrens Hospital.

Please dig deep and help us help others by sponsoring a room in Olivers memory.

This is a great charity Fran and i'm pleased to support. Not least because Ronald is my namesake and there is more than a passing resemblance!
