Awards for Networks Online and ruralnet|online

Awards for Networks Online and ruralnet|online

A new regeneration charity yesterday won two awards on the same day for related online initiatives.

While Networks Online received a commendation at the National eWell-Being Awards held on 18 June at the BT Tower, ruralnet|uk won the regional e-Commerce Award for the Voluntary and Community sector in the West Midlands.

Simon Berry, Chief Executive of ruralnet|uk and co-founder of Networks Online said: “We have never entered for awards before but thought that publicity would do us good as we launch ruralnet|uk as an independent rural regeneration

charity. We are delighted with the outcome as we go forward to the national level of the e-Commerce awards.

“Ruralnet|online has been going for more than four years and it’s always been a challenge to convey what we do outside our membership. It’s our aim to help build a creative and connected countryside, and share good practice across all the voluntary sector via Networks Online.”

Ruralnet|uk launches as an independent rural regeneration charity on 1 August 2002. Networks Online is a network for networks spawned by ruralnet|online.
