ROC partners with McDonalds –
A team from McDonalds head office attended the ROC Conversation in Widnes in February.
We had some interesting discussions with them about the work they do in the community. They have had a long standing partnership with Keep Britain Tidy for example and their staff regularly get involved with litter picking. They also train some of their staff to support customers in various ways. McDonalds were interested to see how they might work with ROC and how we might add value to their community work.
This week had a fantastic meeting to agree a pilot project between ROC and McDonalds with Cheshire Police and the #ROCWidnes Action Group led by Rev Linda Riley.
ROC will train mentors to offer friendship and support in McDonalds stores in Widnes with a view to expanding to other locations. We also hope to develop a community hub and support young people with mentoring.
