Special golden moment for PR firm
Holyrood Partnership in Edinburgh was among a handful of PR firms from north of the border represented at the PRmoment awards, with three nominations.
Staff from the nine-strong agency were delighted to collect the Community Engagement Campaign of the Year.
The Gold award recognised the agency’s work with responsible developer Banks Renewables, which has a number of proposed wind farm sites across Scotland.
Scott Douglas, co-founder and director, said: “We’ve had an extremely successful 18 months winning many diverse PR awards.
“Those have recognised our successful PR campaigns ranging from restaurant and hospitality PR to successful public relations for sports tournaments and crime prevention initiatives.
“But throughout this golden period, our most rewarding and most recognised work has been for community engagement in partnership with Banks Renewables.
“The Banks team are brilliant to work with and our success is only really possible because of their commitment to being so hands-on and transparent with the communities where they have planned developments.”
Mark Dowdall, environment & community director at the Banks Group which has its headquarters in Durham and employs more than 400 people, said: “We are delighted that our work to communicate clearly with communities has now struck gold for a fourth time.
“We’d also like to offer our congratulations to the Holyrood PR team and our community and project team who have worked together to develop a positive and fruitful partnership.”
