GALLERY: McHappy Day activities underway

BENDIGO'S McDonalds restaurants are abuzz with activity for McHappy Day.

Now in its third year, McHappy Day is one of Australia's longest-running charity events.

Money raised from the nation-wide event will go to a range of programs designed to help seriously ill children and their families.

Activities at Bendigo's McDonalds restaurants on Saturday include face-painting, showbags for kids and raffles.

"Bendigo is really getting into the spirit of the day," operations manager Inga McMillan said.

"We're a regional area so Bendigo is one of the places that make use of the Ronald McDonald Houses.

"Most people about Ronald McDonald Houses or know someone who's used a house."
