Help­ing to clean-up the com­mu­nity? We’re lov­ing it

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A LIT­TER-pick­ing team made up of McDon­ald’s work­ers and Hilling­don Coun­cil staff have spruced up two Uxbridge parks.

The 25-strong crew filled over 20 bags of lit­ter from Fass­nidge Park and Rock­ing­ham recre­ation ground as part of the Mayor of Lon­don’s Cap­i­tal Clean-up cam­paign.

McDon­ald’s restau­rants at Uxbridge High Street, The Chimes, New Den­ham, and Bea­cons­field, leant staff to the clean-up, wear­ing high vis­i­bil­ity jack­ets and armed with lit­ter pick­ers.

Cliff Webb, lo­cal McDon­ald’s fran­chisee, said: “When lo­cal busi­nesses like mine and com­mu­nity mem­bers work to­gether we are able to achieve so much more and this event is a per­fect ex­am­ple of this.”

The burger chain has a four year part­ner­ship with the Mayor of Lon­don and MP for Uxbridge & South Ruis­lip, Boris John­son’s Cap­i­tal Clean-up pro­gramme.

McDon­ald’s say staff from their restau­rants pa­trol the streets three times a day to col­lect lit­ter that has been dis­carded, re­gard­less of ori­gin.
