Mcdonalds Yamba celebrates McHappy Day

McDonald’s restaurants around Australia hosted their 28th McHappy Day on Saturday, to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities Australia (RMHC), which supports families with seriously ill children.

Last year’s McHappy Day raised $4.9m for the charity, with organisers hoping to reach $5m this year.

McDonald’s Yamba owner Paul Bews said that the day was always a lot of fun for his staff.

“We’re aiming to raise around $5000 this year to contribute towards the national total,” Mr Bews said.

“Last year we raised around $4000 through the sale of socks, helping hands and obviously the Big Mac donations ($2 from each Big Mac sold) on the day as well,” he said.

Mr Bews said that for anyone who was unable to get into the store on Saturday, could possibly still pick up any leftover merchandise over the next week or so, to help support the charity.
