I am currently helping organise an online auction in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.
This appeal is on behalf of a friend of the Paisley website.

I am trying to raise as much as I can for this very worthwhile charity, following their help with an immediate family member in her final stages of life.
I obtained permission from Marie Curie to do the fund raising, and received both a written letter & email letter of authorisation. I have approached various “Celebs” via Twitter, asking if they would be willing to donate something to be auctioned.

Angela says, I have received quite a number of replies with promises of help, so far I have managed to secure 10 signed books, music goodies, a signed limited edition print from an artist, & a one off piece of handmade costume jewellery, along with other bit and pieces being sent to me, (such as signed pics etc) A friend of mine has helped out by enlisting the help of 2 other very well known “Celebs” and I have secured items from them. And may also have secured the rugby ball from the forthcoming Scotland v England 6 nations game.
The online auction is planned for the end of March, once I have gathered everything up to auction, as I want to do one big auction.

I am looking for items that the public might not ordinarily be able to obtain, and as a huge Robbie Williams fan have recently purchased a limited edition of a Robbie Williams Commemorative 2010 Brit award plaque that is limited to 250 copies, which I plan to auction in aid of Marie Curie in my auction.
Any help would be very gratefully received.

If you can help please email Angela Heaney

If you cant donate something yourself then please pass this on to someone that can help…
Remember all proceeds will go to a very worthwhile charity, The Marie Curie Cancer Care charity.


I am trialing our very own social network, similar to that of bebo and the likes, but please don’t let that put you off as this one will certainly be different and will have one common goal of bringing people together to promote the town of Paisley and also discuss the problems that face us all in this economic crisis.

The new “Paisley Community” section will let members show their own profile, update their pictures, add pictures to their own gallery, create their own online journal, invite friends, add video or music and one other thing we now have video and audio chat yes that’s video and audio chat so you can now meet and see and hear people that you have been talking to through the years via plain text.

Remember it is in its early stages as yet but it looks like a worthy inclusion to the Paisley website.

Note: members who have already signed up for the message board have immediate access and you just have to use your existing user-name and password to gain access to the Paisley Community social network.
