I would just like to thank everybody who voted for Paisley on the Web www.paisley.org.uk in the RBS Community Force Awards 2011.
We can now announce that we have won our category and that we will receive over £6,000 to purchase much needed equipment for the group of volunteers at Paisley on the Web, ensuring that we can attend events and special occasions in the Paisley and Renfrewshire calendar and promote them via our website and social media.
The money will also be used to train volunteers who are currently out of work and also our younger volunteers. They will not only be taught how to use the equipment, they will also gain much needed skills for future employment.
We would like to thank not only the volunteers who gave up so much of their time campaigning for this award but their friends and family and every single one of you who voted, not just for Paisley on the web but for every cause in the Paisley area. This award will help us promote each of the organisations involved to a wider audience and we congratulate each and every one of them.
In our eyes any group or organisation in Paisley which is trying to promote the area has also won. We will be contacting them to see if we can assist in any way in highlighting their group and will use our new equipment to promote them to the best of our ability. I would like to also take this opportunity to thank the Royal Bank of Scotland for this award and can assure them that their contribution to the community and area will be put to best use.
