AN APPEAL for wooden pallets for this year's Bonfire Spectacular in Sanders Park has seen the district council have 1,000 of the crates pledged in just a matter of days.
We ran the story, along with a picture of civic head, Coun Helen Jones, and Lyn Winters from the Primrose Hospice, on our front page last week and the local community rose to the challenge.
One company - Buildland from Redditch - will be donating 500 pallets and the rest have also been secured.
Buildland employee John Lyth said: "We have deliveries all the time and we had the pallets stored up over the back.
"When we found out about the appeal we were more than happy to help.
"We have also given a load to Redditch Fire Station," he added.
A Bromsgrove District Council spokesperson said: "The public and businesses responded to the calls and we now have the 1,000 pallets we needed.
"Everyone here is delighted it happened so quickly."
