35 Years of Dedication

Not many people can say that they have dedicated their time and support to one charity for over 35 years, but Cecil Waghorn can. Since our doors opened in 1984, we have been lucky enough to call Cecil our friend and a forever family member of Ronald McDonald House Charities Ottawa. Whether it is a leaky tap, a broken toilet or plumbing updates, we can always call on W&W Plumbing and either Cecil or his son Larry will be over in a flash.

Not only has W&W Plumbing donated their serves for 35 years but they have been an ongoing sponsor of the RMHC Open since the first year we teed off. Cecil is devoted to our mission and understands the importance of family, making sure that his own is always by his side whether at the House or on the golf course.

“Cecil is kind, friendly, and always arrives at the House with a big smile on, even when the second-floor bathroom flooded down to my office. It has been an honor to know Cecil for the past 35 years.”
– Cheryl Levasseur, Director of Family Services

We thank Cecil, W&W Plumbing and his entire family for the ongoing commitment to our House and Families. We are forever grateful for your devotion to helping us make our House a place that many people can call home.
