Paisley.is becomes ModStuff sponsor at The Spree

Thursday 26th September, 2019

The ModStuff Scooter Rideout at this year’s Spree is being sponsored by the area’s destination brand Paisley.is…and local businesses are coming 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.

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, Jewelfarethe Bungalowthe 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.

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”.

Renfrewshire Council recently launched a Spend Local campaign to encourage residents, visitors and staff to support businesses based in the area.
