For the sixth annual #LoveMK Day, local McDonald’s franchise Kaizen Restaurants is inviting residents and businesses alike to get involved in a Love Where You Live events.

Last month, MK tourist group and information service Destination Milton Keynes hosted a Facebook poll inviting residents and businesses to vote for their nearby areas, with eight locations to choose from.

The final result saw three locations chosen, and as a result the following litter picks taking place during the day itself, which will happen on Thursday May 3rd.

The first is 8am-10am at Westcroft/Howe Park Wood, which will initially meet at McDonald’s Westcroft. The second takes place from 12pm-2pm in Central Milton Keynes, with the meeting place McDonald’s Xscape. The final event happens at 4pm-7pm in the Kingston/Monkston/Kents Hill area, meeting at McDonald’s Kingston

Ken Tomkins, owner of Kaizen Restaurants which operates five of the restaurants in Milton Keynes, commented “As a long-standing resident of Milton Keynes, I’m always keen to support #LoveMK Day.

“When we joined Destination Milton Keynes earlier this year, we were keen to take our love for the city a step further than previous years.

“#LoveMK Day not only promotes Milton Keynes as a key destination, but it also harnesses the pride that many people have in their city. What better way to demonstrate our love for the city than to go out and make a difference to our local areas on #LoveMK Day?”
