Gen­ero u s s t a f f f rom McDona ld’s A irdr i e r e s t au r a n t do n a t e d re­fresh­ments and fruit to the an­nual Cul­tural Foot­ball Fes­ti­val.

Or­gan­ised by Po­lice Scot­land, Nil by Mouth, North La­nark­shire Coun­cil and the SFA, this year’s event was held at the Raven­scraig re­gional sports fa­cil­ity.

The fes­ti­val has been run­ning for the past two years and con­sists of a full day event with a seven-a-side foot­ball tour­na­ment as well as a work­shop hosted by Dave Scott from Nil by Mouth.

The aim of the tour­na­ment is to help break down many of the men­tal bar­ri­ers that di­vide com­mu­ni­ties, schools and fam­i­lies.

McDon­ald’s op­er­a­tions c o n s u l t a nt Caro l i n e An­der­son, who or­gan­ised the re­fresh­ments, said: “We are re­ally happy to have been in­volved with this im­por­tant event by do­nat­ing fruit and wa­ter and are keen to work with the an­nual fes­ti­val in the fu­ture.

“The prin­ci­ples of the fes­ti­val and or­gan­is­ers align with those held by McDon­ald’s, mak­ing foot­ball ac­ces­si­ble for all.”
