News of a donation from Banks Renewables which has enabled a local football team train after dark, has hit the headlines, thanks to Scottish PR experts.

The Hamilton-based firm made a donation of £900 to Netherthird Amateur Football Club to buy a set of floodlights, which will be used during training sessions every week at Netherthird Playing fields.

Neil Gibson, secretary at the club is delighted with the donation and has praised the efforts of  the renewable firm for investing in the local community and the team.

The full article appeared in the Cumnock Chronicle and was secured as part of a media relations campaign carried out on behalf of Banks Group by Holyrood PR.

Double The Coverage For Banks Renewables

Banks Renewables have scooped two items of coverage in The Galloway News with an article on their scaled down plans at Knockendurrick and a full page advertising feature, exemplifying our advertorial copyrighting service.

The renewable energy firm had originally planned to build 10 wind turbines on the site, but after a series of public meetings, they have cut that number to 7.

The article also highlights their community partnership scheme which would see communities share 3% of the wind farm’s annual gross revenue.

As part of our advertorial service the full page spread highlights Banks Renewables “Meet the Buyer” event, a chance for local businesses to get involved in the development, construction and operation of the proposed Knockendurrick Wind Farm.
