The Paisley community is a generous and supportive one which is always willing to support a good cause. Fundraising events, in particular, are always popular as they bring the community together for fun and relaxation while giving them the opportunity to do some good for the world. But how do you plan an event to raise money and awareness of your cause? The key to success in charity fundraising is all in the planning to ensure it runs without problems. From coffee and cake mornings to family fun days and black tie balls, here are six tips for planning charity events in Paisley.

  1. Make sure you have a fundraising target

You need to set a fundraising target which is achievable so you can motivate your fundraisers and donors. Without a goal and a clear vision of what that money will achieve you will find it hard to convince people to part with their money. You may want to set the target a little higher than you need so encourage generosity in your donors.

  1. Choose a popular theme

Try to plan an event which will appeal to your target donor. For example, a cake sale or family fun day will appeal to lots of people, but they may not have the disposable income to give much money. On the other hand, a black-tie ball may attract wealthier attendees, but there are likely to be less of them.

  1. Contact local businesses for support

Contact local Paisley businesses to ask if they can support or sponsor the event in some way. They could sponsor the catering costs or pay to display their posters around your venue, for example. If you are running a raffle or an auction they may be able to donate a voucher or prize in exchange for their logo in your programme.

  1. Work as a team

Even if the event is your idea and the charity is a personal cause for you, it’s important to remember that you will achieve far more if you work with a team than you would on your own. Build a team of people with diverse skills and contacts as you will be able cast a wider net in terms of raising awareness and gathering support.

It’s often useful to create some sort of uniform for the event itself or fundraising activities so the team has a stronger sense of identity and you advertise the event and/or your social media accounts. For example, a Manchester based t-shirt printing company can create unique designs which will reinforce your message and create a bond within the team. Make sure that everyone in the team understands their role and responsibilities and that communication is clear and regular.

  1. Get the right insurance

While most charity events will run smoothly, you need to plan for the worst. Carry out a risk assessment for all of the activities which you will be running at your event and make sure you have the right insurances in place. If an attendee was to be injured or a supplier’s equipment was damaged, you and your charity could be financially liable if legal action is taken.

  1. Thank your attendees, donors, and sponsors

When the event is done, it’s essential that you take the time to thank all your attendees, volunteers, donors, and sponsors. This can be done through personal letters, emails, and social media as well as through the press if you can get some local coverage. By showing people who much their support has helped and what their money will achieve you can create long-term relationships.

 

FOUR young women are living the dream after achieving their goal of having a career in sport.

From left, Amie Couttie, Tammy Johnston, Erin Campbell and Samantha Duncan

They have gone from volunteering to help run sports activities while they were still at school, studying for qualifications at college and university to now becoming successful sports coaches as Renfrewshire Leisure Active Schools Co-ordinators.

During Scotland’s Women and Girls in Sport Week – September 28 to October 4 – Amy Couttie, Samantha Duncan, Tammy Johnston and Erin Campbell revealed the role of the staff and coaching initiatives from Renfrewshire Leisure had in helping them achieve their “dream job” in sport.

 Tammy Johnston was just four when she started competing in Irish dancing competitions and as she got older, Tammy began coaching younger dancers.

“This was when I discovered my love of teaching and leadership,” she says.

“Then, when I was in secondary school I came across my Active Schools Co-ordinator and it wasn’t long before I was going to primary schools delivering activities during Health Week.

“After I’d taken part in the Renfrewshire School of Sport Education programme I realised I wanted to pursue a career as an Active Schools Co-ordinator.

“I volunteered to work more than 300 hours during the programme and the Active Schools team helped me develop my confidence, leadership and core coaching skills.”

While Tammy was at university studying for a Sports Development degree, she became a sessional coach with Active Schools and ran an after-school club for participants with addition support needs.

Tammy, 21, from Paisley is now a full-time Active Schools Co-ordinator and she says: “The aims of increasing participation in sport for everyone is something I am really passionate about.

“I love walking into schools and feeling I am making a difference to young people’s lives. I was just 13 when I decided this is what I wanted to do and I never thought I would be where I am today working in my dream job.”

Amy Couttie, 24, from Howwood, in Renfrewshire explains: “My journey began when I was 14 and I volunteered to help run sports clubs in my local primary school.

“After four years of coaching in schools and extra-curricular clubs, Renfrewshire Leisure gave me a job as a sessional sports coach.

“I was dedicated to my role with Renfrewshire Leisure and after graduating with a BSc in Sports Coaching, I was focussed on pursuing a full-time career doing something I loved.”

Amy adds: “That’s now happened, as I’ve recently been given a role with Renfrewshire Leisure as an Active Schools and Community Club Development Officer.

“I’m on cloud nine that I’ve managed to get a full-time job in Active Schools – the place where I started my journey in sport.”

Samantha Duncan, 23, from Linwood got her passion for sport through her dance background and being a competitive street dancer. She came fifth in the World Championships and made the semi-final of the European championships.

She says: “My experiences and a passion for sport made me understand the positive impact sport can have on people’s lives.

“So, I continued my journey by taking a Sports Leaders course at school and completed the Renfrewshire School of Sport Education programme.

“Throughout my studies at college and university where I gained a degree in Sports Development, I volunteered as a coach with the Active Schools programme promoting and developing dance and gymnastics to young people.

“I’m now a full-time Active Schools Co-ordinator with Renfrewshire Leisure and I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given over the years. Sport is a massive part of my life and it has shaped me into a confident individual.

“My dream has become a reality and I can now support young people who aspire to make a difference and help them have a career in sport – just like me.”

Erin Campbell, 23, from Houston, Renfrewshire was a sports fanatic from an early age and joined as many sports clubs as she could while at primary school. She then went on to represent Scotland playing basketball in several age groups.

Erin’s involvement with Renfrewshire’s Active Schools programme began while she was in her third year at university studying for a degree in Sport and Physical Activity.

She explains: “I had to arrange a work placement as part of the course and my local Active Schools programme seemed like the ideal place as I’d always had an interest in what it does.

“This gave me valuable experience and I’ve now got a full-time job as an Active Schools Co-ordinator.”

Chairperson of Renfrewshire Leisure, Councillor Lisa-Marie Hughes said: “What Amy, Samantha, Tammy and Erin have achieved is nothing short of inspirational. They can be rightly proud of their achievements. We’re also proud of them and what we’ve done to help them on their journey.

“Their stories show that girls and young women can achieve their dreams of working in a sports-related job and you can be sure Renfrewshire Leisure will be here to help the up-and-coming sports coaches and organisers of the future – just like we helped Amy, Samantha, Tammy and Erin.”

Things have changed dramatically when it comes to traveling and entering the United States of America; different governmental changes are taking place to change how immigrants and tourists enter US soil. The traditional Visa systems, there are slowly being brushed aside, and soon it will be a thing of the past thanks to ESTA. Take a look below at some important information about these changes if you’re thinking of traveling to the US.

What is ESTA? 

It stands for Electronic System for Travel Authorization, and this is the new method that allows people to get in the US. It’s developed by the government’s DHS, and it’s basically a visa waiver program that allows people from specific countries to enter the US, whether it’s for a vacation or business. It can last for two years as long as your trip duration isn’t more than 90 days. It’s an automated system that makes things a little clearer and easier for the DHS to track who enters and leaves the country.

How Can I Get One?

If you’re going to the States soon, there is only one way to get it done, and that’s available online only. You will need to fill out the ESTA form on their designated website, and you will need to put in your credit or debit card details to pay the fee for requesting the form. Your passport should be an electronic one with a digital chip that contains all the information about you, and it should have the machine-readable part of its biographic page. This is an important requirement for your form to be fully accepted.

Will I Need One With My Initial Visa?

Even though a lot of people had visas approved, some of them were revoked depending on the purpose of why it was issued. But if you have an old visa with you that is still approved, it will continue to work for you and you will not need an ESTA to enter the country.

Is It Safe?

People shouldn’t worry about their information being submitted through the ESTA channels as they go through the same strict privacy process that is similar to the traveler screening programs. Their website is operated and monitored by the DHS and the government, so it will have all the necessary technological programs for protection and ease of access. 

The Future of ESTA

This program is not a visa, but soon the regulations regarding the visa requirements will change and it might act as one. It does make things a lot easier because of its automated nature; it saves time and manpower, and there is a nice money-back guarantee feature for people who try but get their form declined. So it’s a lot different than the visa systems we are used to.

If you find yourself in a difficult situation when you want to travel to the US, this new program can actually fix a lot of these problems. It’s a win-win situation because you want to enter and the government there wants to know exactly who you are. So fill out the form perfectly and wait it out. Hopefully, you will be accepted and get approved to enter the country with ease.

Paisley Pirates stall

Paisley Pirates fans are counting down the days until they finally get to see their team in competitive action, with their new season due to commence in under a fortnight on Saturday 12 October when they make the short trip to Kilmarnock to take on the local Thunder in a Stuart Robertson Cup tie, some six and a half months after they last played a competitive match, when they won the Playoff Final, beating Murrayfield in the process.

Paisley Pirates stall

“It’ll be good to see all the work of the summer finally coming to fruition in less than two weeks”, said Off Ice Operations Manager Jackie Turley. “Due to the other events being held in Braehead Arena we will as usual be starting behind the other teams in the league, but at  least supporters will be able to look forward to a regular diet of home matches from then onwards, the first of which is against Aberdeen Lynx on Saturday 26 October.”

Player/Coach Adam Walker commented, “There’s been a few changes to the roster from last year which is common to every team, but nothing wholesale, so fans can look forward to greeting many of the team which did so well in the previous season, while welcoming brothers Jay and Conor Duncan, goalie Danny Morris, and local junior Zak Kenneth who attends Trinity High School just along the road at Renfrew, so like previous years we’ve retained a strong local flavour within the team, which is very important to us, while freshening it up a little.”

Head Coach Ian Turley remarked, “With the ice at Braehead not being available until next week, we’ve been indebted to one of our main sponsors, ProLife, who have helped us with spin classes so the boys have been prepared to go the extra mile already to get their fitness levels as high as possible before we finally get underway. Hopefully all of this preparation will stand us in good stead once we get going, and we’ll see the benefit of it all once we take to the ice in earnest.”

Tannahill Centre

New football facilities, a music library and free bike repairs are just a few of the projects soon to be available for young people in Renfrewshire after the successful applications were announced for the Celebrating Renfrewshire Fund.

43 projects were awarded a total of £150,000 in funding after almost 3500 young people cast more than 10,000 votes.

Tannahill Centre

The successful projects were announced at a celebration event at the Tannahill Centre in Paisley which was attended by more than 100 young people and community partners from across Renfrewshire.

St Mirren Youth Football Club were successful in receiving the maximum £3000 to create a changing facility at the India Tyres park which help to get hundreds of budding footballers out onto the park.

Stephen Mann, St Mirren YFC Treasurer, said: “What this funding is going to do is allow our nine boys and five girls teams to be playing out of the Tyres hopefully from 2020.

“It’s really going to boost our club and make sure that more young people are going to be playing at the Tyres in the near future.”

Another successful project that received the maximum award was Erskine Music and Media, a Community Interest Company run by young people, for young people that provides services such as music tuition, PA hires, event filming and photography.

Catherine Coyle, Erskine Music and Media, said: “This funding will help us to create a new music library consisting of vinyl’s and CDs, as well as opening up lots of opportunities to go on trips, see new places and play gigs.

“In general, it is going to open a lot of doors for us and give us more opportunities in the musical world.”

Previously known as the Youth Challenge Fund, youth groups across Renfrewshire came together to form a steering group which facilitated the fund, as well as renaming it the ‘Celebrating Renfrewshire Fund – by young people, for young people’.

It allocated £150,000 to projects which will make a real difference to the local area, such as removing the barriers to participation or the stigma around mental health, with the maximum award to each project being £3000.

The funding was split by population between the seven Local Partnership areas of Renfrew; Inchinnan, Erskine, Bishopton and Langbank; The Villages; Johnstone and Linwood; Paisley North, West and Central; Paisley East and Gleniffer.

Councillor Michelle Campbell, Renfrewshire Council’s Young Persons Champion, said: “Through the Celebrating Renfrewshire Fund, we’ve been able to give young people the opportunity to shape their communities how they would like to see them.

“If there is an activity or support that they feel is missing, this fund gives them the chance to create it and we will now support all applicants as best we can to ensure that their ideas come to fruition.

“Too often, young people feel they are outside of the decision-making process, but through the fund we have been able to award almost £150,000 directly to young people to help them improve their own and the lives of their peers in Renfrewshire by making the changes they know are needed.

“Congratulations to all the recipients of funding, now is your time to go make a difference.”

The successful applicants will now use their funding to develop their projects and will be provided with the support they need to progress their ideas into reality from the council’s Community Planning and Youth Services teams.

Adrian McKechnie, Chairperson of Renfrewshire Youth Voice, said: “I think this an amazing opportunity for young people to get involved in the decision making behind how money is spent.

“The projects that the funding is going to go towards, whether this is to affect change or put together programmes that they see the value in, I think that’s what’s at the core of participatory budgeting and what was at the core of the Celebrating Renfrewshire Fund was that it was young people in control of how that money was spent.”

The global iGaming industry has grown massively over the past few years and more people than ever are choosing online platforms to play real money games and place bets. Pulling in revenues exceeding $40 billion per year, iGaming is serious business with a huge customer base. Naturally, with so many platforms operating across the various different verticals each having hundreds to thousands of online members, the need for safe and secure systems is paramount. 

So how are iGaming companies working to keep your personal and payment details safe and secure? Let’s take a look.  

RSAs, RNGs and online casinos 

One of the ways in which iGaming platforms attempt to tackle online fraud is through the use of RSA Security Tokens. An external piece of hardware is used to implement two-factor authentication processes into customer actions, such as logging in to an account or making a withdrawal. 

When a new customer joins a platform, the iGaming company will send out hardware (usually in the form of a key fob, USB or other portable device) that communicates with the RSA Authentication Manager software integrated into the site. The device itself will generate a one-use-only extra password for a limited time (between 10 and 20 seconds), that the new customer will need to input, along with their original account password, in order to carry out transactions.

Random Number Generators (RNGs) are the absolute minimum that online casino gaming platforms need to implement, so steer clear of any operator that doesn’t clearly state on its site that they are in use.

The concept behind them is simple enough, the goal is to make all the mathematical outcomes involved in a game like online slots, blackjack or roulette as random and unique as possible. RNGs are actually software algorithms that generate a completely random sequence of numbers or symbols when a roulette wheel is spun or a slots jackpot is hit. Since the outcomes of these events are wholly unique and untrackable, RNGs can seriously crack down on online fraud by nullifying any of the methods that cheats would use in a bricks and mortar casino

Due to the important role that RNGs play in ensuring online security for both the iGaming platform and their customers, platforms need to have them regularly tested and verified by independent companies to ensure that their RNGs continue to distribute wins in a fair, safe and unbiased way. 

Encryption software and sports betting 

Customers in regulated markets across the globe use online betting sites to place wagers on everything from Major League Baseball winners to who’ll win Strictly Come Dancing. With such high numbers of site visitors it’s crucial that customer details are protected, which is where things like encryption software comes in. 

Encryption technology works by turning any customer data entered onto a site – whether that’s personal details or financial information – into unbreakable strings of code, which can only be “read” by the customer’s device or their account. As a minimum, platforms should use 128-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layers), but the most common is 256-bit SSL. The use of encryption software isn’t just limited to bookmakers and sportsbooks; every reputable iGaming platform needs to integrate data encryption technology into its website.

Gaming licences and privacy policies 

Real money platforms across the board, whether they’re international brands or not, need to be in possession of a gaming licence from a recognised authority like the UK Gambling Commission or the Malta Gaming Authority. These licences should be clearly displayed on the company’s website, along with details like when and who the licence was issued by. 

Privacy policies are designed to protect both the iGaming platform and the customer, but unfortunately not every new casino customer wants to read the small print. These policies actually set out how a particular operator will use the information that a customer provides. It’s especially important to be aware of this because some platforms can legally collect and sell player data onto third party companies, and if a customer signs-up they agree to that process. 

In-site monitoring

Because the risk of online fraud is all too real in the digital era, most reputable iGaming platforms will use their own, in-site processes to monitor and detect potentially fraudulent activity. Gaming sites can implement simple systems to track and assess the behaviour of their customers, which will then build what’s known as their gaming profiles. That way, if there are any anomalies in a customer’s account that significantly differentiates from their regular profile, the systems can alert the platform and the customer that their account may be compromised. 

Similarly, iGaming companies can work with independent monitoring platforms, who use bespoke technology to know in advance if customer data has been stolen or leaked and whether or not payment methods are legitimate.

YOUNGSTERS can have lots of fun and games during the October school holidays.

Renfrewshire Leisure is running a series of activity camps for children in Primaries 1 to 7 at the Lagoon Leisure Centre, Johnstone Sports Hub, Renfrew Sports Centre and Park Mains, in Erskine.

The ever-popular ModStuff Scooter Rideout at this year’s Spree festival is being sponsored by the area’s destination brand Paisley.is…and local businesses are being invited to the party.

As part of the deal for Paisley.is to become headline ModStuff sponsors, event organisers LNP Promotions were invited to pick some local traders to be named as sponsors of the individual awards.

Modfest at the paisley Spree 20.10.18-0597

This year’s ModStuff takes place in The Spiegeltent on Saturday 12 October with a free afternoon show featuring the now-legendary scooter rideout, followed by a sold-out evening show. Paisley Vespa Scooter Club are organising and hosting the Scooter Rideout and Competition in aid of Renfrewshire Carers Centre.

LNP chose the following on the basis of their contribution to the town: Burger and Keg, Castelvecchi, Jewelfare, the Bungalow, the Old Swan, and Café Malatso.

Each one of the businesses will present an award on the day and receive tickets for the sold-out ModStuff evening show or another Spree show for a prize draw for their customers. Pop into each shop or follow them on social media for details of how to enter the prize draws.

The spectacle of up to 100 scooters gathering outside the iconic Spiegeltent before riding off round the town is one of many great reasons to visit Paisley in the weeks ahead as the area’s busy winter events programme kicks in.

Paisley.is was launched last year by Renfrewshire Council to promote everything that makes Paisley and Renfrewshire a great place to visit, live and invest – and www.paisley.is is the go-to place for what’s on in the area.

Gary Kerr of LNP Promotions said: “We are delighted to team up with Paisley.is as headline sponsors of this year’s ModStuff – which has allowed us to give something back to a small selection of the many businesses who add value to the town. LNP wanted to recognise their contribution of those businesses to Paisley and highlight the value they place on community and customer service.”

Renfrewshire Council’s head of communications, marketing and events Louisa Mahon said: “Paisley town centre is home to a great variety of shops, cafés and restaurants that provide a wonderful welcome to visitors and locals alike. We want everyone who visits Paisley, or lives or learns here, to Spend Local and support traders who go the extra mile every day and are huge supporters of events in the town.

“Through Paisley Is, we want to recognise their contribution and are delighted to get behind LNP Promotions at ModStuff 2019 and share sponsorship of the Scooter awards. ModStuff is a highlight of the annual Spree festival and attracts a great audience from all over Scotland. This is a perfect platform to highlight what makes Paisley unique and say thank you to some of the traders who make Paisley great”.

Since its launch in March 2018, Paisley Is has achieved almost 500 million opportunities to hear and see something positive about the town through local, national and international media, and our events programme has gone from strength to strength with over 160,000 people attending events in the town.

Renfrewshire Council recently launched a Spend Local campaign to encourage residents, visitors and staff to support businesses based in the area. For more info see www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/spendlocal

Enterprises large and small can find themselves stagnating as the business forces move beyond them, and their rivals pick up the slack by onboarding innovative new business processes. If you feel that your business may be stuck in one such rut, it may be time to consider some transformative action to help you get back on track. That’s what this guide’s all about; giving you the technical information, as well as the necessary inspiration, to have your business firing on all cylinders once more, enabling you a brighter and more profitable future.

Consider Staff

One of the main downfalls of enterprises is also the easiest issue for an outsider to spot. The culture amongst your workforce is incredibly important; if it’s good, it’ll help you serve your customers better, driving up sales.If it’s bad, you’ll quickly descend into a position in which you’re pulling punches against your competitors. Change your staff culture, onboard bright young workers, and consider automating certain jobs in order to transform your business for the better as we approach 2020.

Use Technology

Another area which can prove to be incredibly useful for businesses looking to transform, upgrade and compete anew is to enlist the help of technology. Digital technology has come a long way since it was first introduced in the workplace, by IBM and others, many decades ago. Now, the push for competition is all about how you can upgrade your software applications to help serve your customers better. One way to achieve this is to buy VMware that helps you perform complex operations in the virtual space – enabling your scale-up to fully digital operations in an orderly and efficient manner.

Full Audit

Audits help you spot and plug the gaps present in your business. If there are places in which you’re underperforming, losing cash, or operating inefficiently, it’s a full audit that’ll show you exactly where. You can either conduct such an audit in-house with a dedicated and specifically trained team, or use experts from outside your company to help you get a clearer picture of what needs to be done to upgrade your business to the next level.

Rebranding

Sometimes, a business’s brand gets tired, old and rusty. If this is the case for you and your enterprise, you might consider giving your business a total rebrand; modernising the branding you use to attract new custom and guide repeat custom back to your company. Just as a book is judged by its cover, a company is often judged by its brand – so it’s important you nail yours in order to present a compelling narrative to consumers to buy into. Hire external consultants and designers to help you in this process.

Management Skills

As a manager, you should also be ready to look at yourself and your own management practices in order to root out what’s going right or wrong in your business. Sometimes, some upskilling and humility may be necessary in order to swing your company’s performance in your favour; one to keep in mind if you’re considering transforming your business.

These tips should help you successfully transform your business into a more efficient, profit-driven machine.
