STAFF at McDonald’s restaurants in the capital have raised £8,500 for the Ronald McDonald house in Oxford.

Kurt Jansen, who is the franchisee of eight restaurants in Harrow, High Wycombe, Bushey and Stanmore, rallied a group of volunteers who did a sponsored climb up Mount Snowdon in Wales.

Mr Jansen said: “Since becoming a franchisee, I’ve been fortunate enough to see first-hand the great work that the Ronald McDonald Houses do to support children and families during very difficult times in their lives. This motivated all my team to do Snowden and we will continue raising funds.”
