A team from the McDonald’s restaurant on Sidcup High Street teamed up with mayor of Bexley Cllr Brian Bishop and others to clean up the area.

The group included other councillors and 25 volunteers from the McDonald’s restaurant – owned and operated by franchisee Bill Perera.

The group collected 30 bags of rubbish and debris.

Mr Perera said: “I was really proud to see everyone come together and help tidy up Sidcup.

“It’s a key priority of ours to ensure that the local area remains free of litter and an enjoyable place to live, work and visit.

“As a business we understand the important role that we play in making the area a cleaner place for everyone.”

Keep Britain Tidy chief executive Allison Ogden-Newton said: “McDonald’s Love Where You Live initiative, together with their day-to-day commitment to tackling the problem through their litter patrols and their ongoing support keep Britain tidy, is an example of how a business can make a real difference.”
