Nearly two hundred families enjoy the Family Retreat each year

“There’s no charge to families to enjoy up to a weeks family holiday. For most families, it’s their only chance to take a holiday due to costs ongoing hospital and medical appointments. Our aim is to provide as much as possible so the family has as little as possible to think about, nearly two hundred families enjoy the retreat each year and this includes families from the Hastings region,” said Rhiannon Curtis Ronald McDonald Family Retreat Forster Coordinator.

Linen, some groceries and a voucher book with up to $350 worth of discounted or complimentary offers to enjoy. Each child receives a welcome gift. Cabins are all self-contained with a fully equipped kitchen and laundry to give families freedom and flexibility.

“The sponsorship gives families with a seriously a child an opportunity to relax on holiday during a difficult time. Eire Constructions is proud to support this important cause,” said Tadhg Kelliher.

Eire Constructions – building communities and connections

“We’ve committed to offer annual sponsorships to Mid North Coast organisations to give back to the community and it’s great to see the benefits first hand. We’re proud to build communities and connections from Newcastle to the Mid North Coast including the Hunter Valley, Port Macquarie Hastings, Manning and Great Lakes and the Macleay Valley,” added Tadhg.

The Family Retreat help relieve a little stress with a welcoming and peaceful environment, near the beach and waterways. Families with a seriously ill child, or those grieving the loss of a child, can come together in a calm and relaxing setting, away from the hospital environment.
