Love Where You Live: Linx partners up with McDonald's to make Hemlington more beautiful!
McDonald's joined Linx for a daytime community event where members of the community (of all ages, not just young people!) pitched in to help clear up the area because we Love Where We Live! [Have a nosey at McDonald's LWYL site here.]
The LWYL clean-up crew, armed with litter-picking grabbers and fetching green waterproof ponchos, picked litter all around the lake, on the Rec field, 'round the Linx and Rec buildings and playgrounds. At the end of the day our group of volunteers had amassed a mountainous 32 bags of rubbish!!
Volunteers also painted the two planters outside the Rec, ready for new flowers to be planted there soon.
All in all, a very successful session -and definitely not the last! Linx and McDonald's will carry on cleaning up in Hemlington in the future!
Massive 'Thank You!'s to everyone who got involved -staff from McDonald's, Linx staff and young people and everyone from the local community!
