Ronald McDonald family retreat, RotoruaHoliday haven - Ronald McDonald family retreat

The first Ronald McDonald family retreat in Rotorua provides families with seriously ill children a week’s holiday free of charge and a chance to spend time with their loved ones that they might otherwise not have. The Rotorua lakeside location was chosen due to its central location and proximity to popular attractions in Rotorua. It is expected to be used by 100 families from across the country each year.

The stunning property in Ngongotaha was purchased with support from a local donor and plans were drawn up courtesy of Elliott Architects to make way for a purpose built family retreat consisting of two family homes.

Continuing our support for Ronald McDonald House projects around the country, Resene donated all the paint to this project, including Resene Woodsman penetrating oil stain in hues of Resene Bamboo (clear yellow tan), Resene Fern Frond (yellow green) and Resene Banjul (blackened green) and Resene Lumbersider waterborne low sheen and Resene Sonyx 101 waterborne semi-gloss tinted to Resene Triple Concrete (urban grey) and Resene Concrete (frosted grey). Inside Resene Zylone Sheen adorns most wall areas in hues of Resene Ash (green edged grey) full and quarter strength.
