A WEST Wiltshire IT company is celebrating its 10th anniversary and the founders’ name now set to be added to the side of a Great Western Railway high-speed train.

Kieran Thomas, managing director of Priority IT Ltd in Westbury, was originally one of the finalists for BBC Radio Wiltshire’s Make a Difference Campaign for his laptop refurbishment initiative which saw 150 unloved laptops refurbished and gifted to the local community.

Although Kieran wasn’t picked as the overall winner, they, along with GWR, have decided he’s such a superstar they are going to add his name to the side of the train alongside the winner.The valuable work Kieran and the Wiltshire Digital Drive is doing has meant hundreds of school children, local organisations and charities, have been able to get online and carry out their work and schooling during the coronavirus pandemic.

Mr Thomas said: “It’s been a strange year, but I’m proud of that fact we’ve been able to give back during this time."I couldn’t believe it when I got the call and what better time for it to happen than in our 10th anniversary year."

“It’s amazing how one idea and gesture could make such a difference to people’s lives- but we’re not going to stop here. "We’ve joined forces with Naturally Social, and Turner and Partners, to create the Wiltshire Digital Drive so we can carry on helping people and bridging the digital divide across the whole county.”The company, which provides IT support to businesses, has also been chosen as one of the UK’s Small Biz 100 companies; a campaign aiming to support and celebrate small, community driven businesses across the UK in the run up to Small Business Saturday which takes place on Saturday, December 5.
