He said: "We're thrilled to be able to help spread Christmas cheer this festive season, and it's been wonderful to see my team get involved with so many charitable activities this December."

McDonald's restaurants across the local area have also been getting into the festive spirit with the Salvation Army playing Christmas Carols and students from Peterborough Regional College donning their elf outfits to sing songs.
