McDonald’s staff stepped in to help clear up litter after the Play in the Park event.

There was plenty of rubbish to collect in the aftermath of the August 5 event.

So franchisee Don Gordon and his team of 14 volunteers from the restaurant headed to the park one hour before the event ended and pick up the litter that was left behind.

The kids event was organised by the Aylesbury Vale District Council, who provided the volunteers with litter pickers and bags, and Mix 96, who were playing music in the park.

Cleaning up for around two hours, the team collected 17 bags of litter in total, leaving the park in a clean and tidy condition after the daylong event.

Mr Gordon, who owns and operates the Aylesbury restaurant, said: “It was great to see the restaurant volunteers come together and take the time to tidy up the park after the event and I’d like to thank everyone involved.

“As a business we understand the important role we play in making the area a better place and events like this one can help make a big impact.”

This event is just one of a number of McDonald’s clean-ups which have taken place across the UK as part of Keep Britain Tidy’s anti-littering campaign, ‘Love Where You Live’. The campaign and partnership is now in its fifth year and continues to encourage local communities to take action and work together to tackle litter in their area.
