At 10am on Thursday 16 September, volunteers will congregate at the centre:mk branch of McDonald’s before heading off on a 28 mile journey around Milton Keynes, cleaning up dozens of city estates, and stopping in for refreshments at each of the McDonald’s stores for refreshments along the way.
Ken Tomkins, owner of local franchisee Kaizen Restaurants, commented “We’ve been organising litter picking events in Milton Keynes for a decade now, but due to the pandemic we haven’t been able to organise our usual group gatherings. Instead, there have been lots of volunteers getting out on their own to make a difference to their local areas.”
“We’ve been overwhelmed with how our Love MK Hate Litter community has grown during this pandemic period. I can’t wait to see plenty of those now familiar faces, and new ones too, as we help keep up the clean up on 16 September!”
