Thank you…

for attending the Butterfly Ball on the 26th June 2010, in aid of Ronald McDonald House at Yorkhill Hospital in Glasgow.

We are delighted to report that, thanks to the efforts and generosity of all who attended, along with those who were unable to be there on the night, we have raised over £15,000.00 in funds for the Family House at Yorkhill.

This is a magnificent amount of money and more than we could ever have hoped to raise.

About the Ball

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam.
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to this world.

But then it flies again, and though
we wish it could have stayed,
we feel lucky to have seen it.

The Butterfly Ball was held in memory of a beautiful, happy and determined little girl called Abby Rose Mier.

Her time in this world was short but the impact she made was great and far-reaching.
Please join us in continuing to make an impact in her absence.

The Butterfly Ball, Saturday 26th June 2010, Ingliston Country Club, Bishopton

Charity

Ronald McDonald House

Ronald McDonald House at Yorkhill, Glasgow, opened in March 1996 and provides free accommodation for the families of long term and critically ill patients at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children.

“I knew very little about Ronald McDonald House until I was given the opportunity to stay there during the darkest time of my life. We had been sleeping in chairs for two weeks, life couldn’t have been more bleak and uncomfortable. Suddenly, Ronald McDonald House offered a little chink of light. I cried when I saw the en-suite bathroom. It was homely, clean, and very organised. Most importantly, it was the only ‘home’ we could cope with, across the road from the hospital, a couple of minutes walk from our girl.

Sometimes I would put Abby in her pram and take her there, a lovely place to escape to. Simple things, like having a kitchen to cook dinner in every night made all the difference. One beautiful day in April, we had a picnic in the garden with Abby. It was the most normal thing we’d done in months and it was lovely. Normal was all we wanted.

I cannot stress how important this charity is. I will always be grateful to Ronald McDonald House for everything they did for us. It is a home from home, a place of refuge, a sanctuary.”

(Vicky Mier, Abby’s Mum)
