McDonald’s franchisee Ismail Anilmis and the crew from his Leighton Buzzard and Hockliffe restaurants joined forces with Keep Britain Tidy to carry out litter picks in Hockliffe, Tebworth Village and Stockgrove Park last month.
The clean-up events in Hockliffe and Tebworth saw 17 volunteers from the Hockliffe restaurant clear litter from the hedgerows leading up to both villages.
The volunteers, were joined by three local Cub Scouts and MP for South West Beds Andrew Selous on the litter pick. The group collected 14 bags of rubbish in total.
Earlier in September, 15 volunteers from the Leighton Buzzard McDonalds joined together to clean up debris and litter from Stockgrove Park.
Ismail, who owns 10 restaurants across Beds, Herts, Oxon and Warks, said: “It was great to see everyone come together to complete this work and I’d like to thank everyone involved for all their hard work.
“As a business, we understand the important role we play in making the area a better place.”
