Call for more lit­ter pick vol­un­teers

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

A fast food restau­rant is or­gan­is­ing a lit­ter pick this week­end.

Mc­Don­ald’s in Ash­ford is or­gan­is­ing the rub­bish clear-up as part of Love Where You Live, a na­tional anti-lit­ter­ing cam­paign led by Keep Bri­tain Tidy, and is look­ing for vol­un­teers to join its team.

Staff from Eureka Leisure Park Mc­Don­ald’s will be join­ing forces with vol­un­teers from Brom­ley Green Foot­ball Club to col­lect rub­bish around Ruther­ford Road, Trin­ity Road and Faver­sham Road on Sun­day from 2.30pm.

Re­fresh­ments and Mc­Don­ald’s snacks will be pro­vided af­ter the lit­ter pick for all the vol­un­teers.

Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil is sup­port­ing the event by help­ing to dis­pose of the lit­ter col­lected, and pro­vid­ing lit­ter pick­ing equip­ment such as high vis­i­bil­ity jack­ets, lit­ter pick­ers, gloves and bin bag hoops.

Tracey But­ler, coun­cil head of en­vi­ron­ment and land man­age­ment, said: “This is a fan­tas­tic ex­am­ple of the com­mu­nity work­ing to­gether to help keep our bor­ough clean and tidy for ev­ery­one to en­joy.”

Aaron Davis, of Mc­Don­ald’s Eureka Park, said: “It is ab­so­lutely vi­tal that we as a busi­ness with ex­ten­sive links in the com­mu­nity should col­lab­o­rate with the coun­cil with projects and ini­tia­tives like this.”
