MCDONALDS franchisee Ismail Anilmis and his staff from the Bedford High Street branch have joined forces with Keep Britain Tidy, and Rotary Club of Bedford Castle to collect litter in the area.
The team consisting of 10 volunteers cleared the public walkways around the Oasis swimming pool, collecting 19 bags of litter in the process, as well as 57 pence in change.
The event was part of Keep Britain Tidys campaign, Love Where You Live, of which McDonalds was a founding partner.
Franchisee Ismail Anilmis said: It was great for us to get together to take action against litter, and Id really like to thank my staff and Rotary Club of Bedford Castle for their support. Litter is everyones responsibility, and this event will hopefully raise awareness of the issue, and educate people to dispose of their rubbish responsibly.
