Earlier this summer local McDonald’s franchise Kaizen Restaurants announced the first annual “Kaizen Football Tournament” in aid of Ronald McDonald House Oxford. Now, with just days to go, local teams are invited to take advantage of the last remaining spaces in a bid to win the inaugural Kaizen Trophy and raise vital funds for the charity.
The tournament will take place on Tuesday 25 July at the well known Powerleague facility in Walnut Tree, kicking off at 10am and running through the day. Refreshments will be available during the day and a charity auction will also take place in the afternoon.
The event will raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Oxford, which acts as a home away from home for local families with children in the Oxford John Radcliffe Hospital. Ronald McDonald Houses around the country give families the chance to stay just a stones’ throw away from the Children’s Hospital. In this case, it is located under the same roof. The House has everything a family could need to give them some semblance of order, including kitchens, laundry facilities and a lounge area.
Ken Tomkins, franchise owner of Kaizen Restaurants, commented “Having seen first hand the incredible work done by the team at Ronald McDonald House Oxford, we have been clear in our need to step up in our fundraising efforts moving forward. In 2016 almost 600 families made use of the Oxford House, and a staggering amount of these families were from from Milton Keynes. These figures remind us why we must raise much needed funds and awareness for our local House, which serves as a lifeline for many families.”
