Harrogate McDonald’s Manager Jaspal Sambhi and a group of 13 volunteers turned out to clean up the area around Granby Quarry during the Great British Spring Clean campaign.
The company’s staff teamed up with Harrogate Council workers, Coun Trevor Chapman and volunteers and cleared 18 bags of rubbish during two hours.
Franchisee Pritpal Singh who owns and operates the Harrogate restaurant on Cambridge Road said: “We were delighted to participate alongside so many willing volunteers who all played their bit in helping make Granby Quarry a cleaner place.
“It was a great day, everyone pitched in and the area looks much better now, we’re very proud to have helped the community.”
Keep Britain Tidy Chief Executive, Allison Ogden-Newton, said: “We know that more than 50 per cent of people are concerned about the appearance of their local area, with local businesses having a real part to play in resolving this.”
