McDonald's staff join Royce Rangers Football Club for a litterpick in Oakham
A football club joined forces with McDonald’s staff to rid the streets of litter.
Fifty volunteers from Royce Rangers Football Club and the Oakham branch of McDonald’s collected 15 bags of litter from the town bypass and nearby streets.
Franchisee Glyn Pashley said: “I’m really proud of my team for giving their time and efforts to do their bit for our fellow Oakham residents.
“McDonald’s is committed to fighting litter in our local communities and we are happy with the difference we continue to make.
"We want to thank Royce Rangers and their parents for joining us on our litterpick and we look forward to working with them again.”
Football club spokesman James Beanland added: “It’s been great to join forces to help keep the local area clean and tidy.”
The Oakham branch of McDonald’s, based in Lands End Way, has donated £3,000 to buy new kits for the football club's players and coaches.
