Paisley Pirates continue to add to their impressive list of local sponsors, following on from the news that Abbey Services, based in Underwood Road, Paisley, have returned to support the club for another season The company provides a full range of building services ranging from the provision of CCTV, roofing, alarms to all forms of building maintenance and extensions.
“We regard ourselves as a local business working in the local community, and we like to give back something in that respect, by investing in it,” explained Derek Ross, for Abbey Services. “The link to the Paisley Pirates, a club which is very much a community organisation, seemed to us to be a natural tie up to enter into, and we’re very pleased with the response we’ve had since we began our partnership with the Pirates. It’s very satisfying to see a club that we support doing so well, and we hope the association continues to bring success to both parties.”
Jackie Turley, Head of Off Ice Operations for the club, commented, “It’s always very pleasing when a company returns to support us after the first season, as it indicates that we must be doing something right, and that they’re quite happy with what they’re receiving from the Paisley Pirates in return for their support. More and more companies are beginning to come on board the Pirates’ ship and it’s absolutely vital that they do, as the cost of running an ice hockey club increases with each passing season. We work very hard to attract sponsors, and we keep working very hard to keep them, because every single one of them is crucial to the continued survival of the club in the ice. We’re very grateful to Abbey Services and, indeed, all of our sponsors for their continued support.”
