11 Mar Gresford nursery children make the most of our unwanted pallets
CHILDREN at a Gresford nursery will be making the most of our unwanted wooden pallets and old truck tyres to help construct treehouses, adventure trails and other structures for the children to play on or turned into work stations for them to sit and paint or play.
“We were delighted to hear that we might be able to contribute in some small way to the children’s enjoyment by donating surplus wooden pallets and old truck tyres and we have happily organised for them to be delivered. It’s an exciting new partnership for us. It’s a novel and very useful way for us to look at how we might find ways of reusing things we have at our warehouse and stop some of them from ending up in landfill.”
Kim said: “The donations from McCarthy Distribution are fantastic and can be put to such good use here. It is the first of many partnerships we hope to nurture with other local businesses to make sure we take advantage of items they no longer need and our children can make the most of. We are always on the look out for all sorts of different things. It could be books and magazines, off cuts of card, material, felt. Trophies, formica samples or unbroken tiles which are no longer wanted. It could be bottle tops, cup holders, beads, candles, old jewellery. “Or larger items like the pallets McCarthy Distribution have so kindly spared.”
