Cornish web-building company offers free websites for charities and community groups

A Cornish web-building company is offering charities and community groups the chance to have websites built for free and be part of a world record Web-Buildathon attempt at the same time.

The offer runs for 24 hours, starting at midday on 19 July.

The internet company MacAce, which is based in Bodmin, will build or rebuild charities’ websites using its WebMate web builder completely free of charge, and will host them for 3 years.

Completed sites will have a maximum of five pages and three email addresses will also be supplied. 

Full web briefs need to be submitted before the start date and work on sites will start on a first-come, first-served basis.

Gary Hall, the chief executive of MacAce, said: “This is a great opportunity for not-for-profit or community groups to get in touch so we can help them during our world-record attempt”.

Charities that want to register their interest should visit the WebMate page.
