Continuing to serve communities across the UK and Ireland
While we’ve been closed, we’ve been doing our small part to help those who needed help most during these difficult times. Following the closure of our restaurants, we were able to deliver more than 100,000 litres of organic milk and 300 tonnes of food - including British Free-Range eggs and RSPCA Assured British bacon to homeless shelters, care homes and NHS workers. We're proud of everything our franchisees and their teams have done to support communities and the national effort from supporting local charities and the National Autistic Sociey, to helping redistribute food to hundreds of chartities and food banks across the UK and Ireland.
BBC’s Big Night In
We were exceptionally proud to partner with the BBC’s Big Night In appeal on Thursday 23rd April to help those most vulnerable during this COVID-19 outbreak. McDonald’s contributed to the Emergency Essentials Fund which provides grants and donations to families in the greatest need of support at this time.
Funds raised will help provide phones and clothing for those fleeing domestic abuse, home-school equipment for families unable to afford it and meals on wheels or cooking equipment for the vulnerable and elderly.
