The event formed part of McDonald’s campaign aimed at tackling litter in parks, on paths and along roadsides in towns across Northern Ireland.

The ‘30 Parks in 30 Days’ campaign saw McDonald’s employees undertake more than 30 local litter clean-ups in parks and nature areas throughout the 30 days of June.

Led by the seven local franchisees across McDonald’s estate of 34 restaurants in Northern Ireland, they were supported by a range of local community groups, elected representatives and football clubs –  including Ashgrove Rovers F.C.

John McCollum, Franchisee of the McDonald’s Newry restaurant comments, “Our annual ‘30 Parks in 30 Days’ campaign reinforces McDonald’s strong commitment to tackle litter right across the UK and Ireland.

“Like our customers and stakeholders, we are always deeply disappointed to see people acting irresponsibly when it comes to littering.

“We want to play a leading role in sparking a change in behaviour towards what can only be described as a scourge on our environment.

“Across the UK and Ireland, our employees walk over 5,000 miles every week picking up all waste – our packaging and that of other retailers – by the sides of roads, in parks and on paths.

“This is further enhanced through proactive partnerships with local community groups, such as Ashgrove Rovers to keep our area clean and litter free by carrying out regular litter picks.”

“It’s always a great opportunity for the kids from Ashgrove Rovers F.C. to work alongside McDonald’s,” David says.

“On this occasion, they had an opportunity to learn the importance of collaboration to create a greener and cleaner community.

“We want to thank McDonald’s for everything that they do for the Ashgrove Rovers F.C. They always are willing to support.”
