Crew members from the McDonald’s restaurants in Brighouse have joined other Calderdale branches in teaming up local Councillor Sophie Whittaker and Keep Britain Tidy to paint and restore some benches in a memorial garden near the restaurant.

The group embarked on the challenge to paint and restore the benches in the memorial garden to give the area a refresh for local residents.

After three hours, the team were really pleased with the difference their restoring of the benches had made to the garden.

McDonald’s franchisee Pritpal Singh, who owns the Brighouse and two Halifax restaurants, said: “I was really proud to see everyone come together and help restore the Memorial Garden.

“It’s a key priority of ours to ensure that the local area remains an enjoyable place to live, work and visit.

“As a business we understand the important role that we play in making the area a cleaner place for everyone.

“It was great to have everyone come together, everyone’s efforts were greatly appreciated, and we really made a difference to the garden.”

This event is just one of a number of McDonald’s clean-ups taking place across the UK as part of its anti-littering campaign, ‘Love Where You Live’.

The campaign continues to encourage local communities to take action and work together to tackle litter in their area, and forms part of a twelve-year partnership between McDonald’s and Keep Britain Tidy.

In addition to larger scale litter events such as this, McDonald’s is committed to finding ways to reduce, reuse and recycle in its restaurants and across its whole business.
