Community, What's On
McDonald’s Newry is calling on members of the local community to join them at their Big Spring Clean event which is taking place on Thursday 10th April with all staff and volunteers meeting at Martins Lane at 10.30am. McDonald’s restaurants will be supporting the Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful Big Spring Clean campaign with a number of events scheduled to take place throughout March and April. Joanne Jones Director of Franchising in Northern Ireland said, “The Big Spring Clean Campaign is an effective way of making a positive difference to a particular area and in previous years it has been inspiring to see members of the community join forces to take action on litter that damages our environment. “This year McDonald’s restaurants are taking the campaign one step further and inviting their local communities to help them clean the spot which will be the area that crew members clear, maintain and revisit throughout the year. “At McDonald’s we believe it is important for everyone to help protect and preserve the environment for future generations and we’re committed to finding ways to reduce, reuse and recycle in our restaurants and across our business,” she added. McDonald’s has supported the Big Spring Clean Campaign since 2010. At the 2013 BIG Spring Clean, McDonald’s staff across Northern Ireland took part in 26 events, collecting over 2 tonnes of discarded waste by cleaning rivers, forests, beaches and housing estates. As well as the larger-scale Big Spring Clean events, staff at every McDonald’s restaurant also patrol the streets regularly to collect all litter that has been discarded, regardless of its origin.
