Aston Merrygold unveils charity playground made from recycled McDonald’s toys

JLS star Aston Merrygold said it was “amazing” to help unveil a new playground made from recycled McDonald’s Happy Meal toys at one of Britain’s Ronald McDonald Houses.

The homes provide free accommodation to families with children who are hospitalized in nearby hospitals and are supported by fast-food company McDonald’s, which has raised over £100million for the charity since 1989.

Boy band singer Merrygold, 34, opened the new playground at the Ronald McDonald House in Manchester, which supports families with children at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

“It’s been amazing to see exactly how donations from McDonald’s and its customers are helping support the families who live in the homes,” the singer said.


The singer has been able to chat with families currently residing at the home in Manchester (Ronald McDonald House Charities).

“Ronald McDonald House Charities UK provide a home away from home when families need it most.

“As a parent of two myself, I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for these families.”

McDonald’s also announced its desire to raise a further £1million this month through customer collection boxes, digital donation channels and the ongoing fundraising efforts of the franchise and its employees.

The opening in Manchester follows McDonald’s donation of playgrounds to four Ronald McDonald Houses in London in 2021.

Made from more than a million recycled Happy Meal toys, the playgrounds were created specifically for families living in the houses and feature an activity course, pyramid cave, interactive wall and activity table.

Merrygold was also able to meet some of the families who live in the Manchester home and play with some of the children.

“All the parents and guardians I have met at Manchester House cannot thank the team enough for the care they have shown at such difficult moments,” he said.

“The new playground is an incredible addition to this home; It was so nice to see the kids and their parents playing and spending time together as a family.” Aston Merrygold unveils charity playground made from recycled McDonald’s toys
