Deniliquin turned out to support McHappy Day at McDonald’s on Saturday.
The Rural Fire Service (RFS) Deniliquin brigade brought two fire trucks to the event, while there was also face painting, balloons for sale, and of course, tasty food.
The day raised money for Ronald McDonald Houses, which house sick children and their families while they undergo treatment.
There was a steady stream of traffic heading through both the restaurant and the drive through on Saturday, and customers had a variety of ways they could contribute.
Customers could purchase a Big Mac, and $2 would go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Alternatively, they could buy a balloon, or a hand with their name on it to stick in the McDonald’s window.
Donation buckets also made their way around the crowds, while children had their faces painted and took part in a colouring in competition.
The Deniliquin restaurant raised $452.05 through the donation buckets alone, and is still waiting to find out the total raised through Big Mac and ‘helping hand’ sales.
RFS captain Scott Fullerton said the brigade also had 100 people come past its display in just 45 minutes.
Firefighters chatted to community members, handed out goodies for the kids, and showed off their sirens.
