Litter pick: Volunteers help clean up beauty spot

Have your say

FAST food restaurant workers helped clean up a Leeds beauty-spot during a litter pick event.

Staff from McDonald’s in Killingbeck collected more than 50 sacks of rubbish during a morning’s work in Wyke Beck Valley.

McDonald’s franchisee Anne Wainwright was approached by The Friends of the Wyke Beck Valley, Leeds city council’s Ranger Service and environmental regeneration charity ‘Groundwork’, to help with removing of rubbish that accumulates in the beauty-spot every year.

She said: “At McDonald’s we are well aware that litter is an issue that is frustrating for everyone in our community, and it is becoming more important than ever for everyone to help protect and preserve the environment for future generations.”

“This has given us another perfect opportunity to join together with our neighbours and see first-hand, the sort of impact we can make to keep our beautiful Wyke Beck Valley clean and tidy if we work together.”
