Stockport McDonald's Opening Christmas Day To Feed Homeless

It seems they had many people offering to work on the day and later posted an update which read: "Thanks so much for all the offers of volunteering. Unfortunately due to the nature of our business it isn't quite as simple as just coming along and we would have to carry out all sorts of risk assessments, paperwork, training beforehand which we simply don't have the time to do.

"The team are overwhelmed by the support shown and we think we have plenty of numbers to help on the day from our own team. We are certainly not ungrateful for the offers but hope you understand we cannot accept x."
