GARDENERS are being urged to give their plants a caffeine boost and support charity at the same time in a new recycling initiative by local branches of McDonald’s.
Used coffee grounds from 12 McDonald’s restaurants in and around the Stafford area being offered for recycling as fertiliser to help fruit and vegetables grow.
The restaurants, including those in Greengate Street and Eccleshall Road, Stafford, owned by franchisee Sarah McLean, aged 53, are selling the coffee grounds to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
RMHC provides a home away from home for families with sick children in hospital, free of charge.
And the Greengate Street outlet has already set up an agreement with one local gardener.
