Jade Sullivan

Jade’s 10k London Winter Run

Congratulations to Jade Sullivan, Positive’s Sales and Marketing Executive, who completed her first 10k challenge on Sunday 3rd February at the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run. 

Jade has raised a whopping £615.00 for Cancer Research UK so far, 246% over her original fundraising target.

The Cancer Research UK London Winter Run is a 10k race through the heart of the city, passing world famous landmarks and instantly recognisable areas that have been taken over by winter creatures.

Since the first event in 2015 over 65,000 people have taken part, raising over £2,000,000 for Cancer Research UK and other good causes.

This year’s race started in Trafalgar Square and finished on Whitehall by Downing Street.  Jade completed her run in just 53 minutes and finished in the top 5,000 runners, out of 23,000 competitors.

Well done Jade!

Following a successful annual audit, Positive has earned the right to continue to display the coveted British Assessment Bureau ISO 27001 & 9001 certification marks, which demonstrate conformance to the ISO standard.

Danny Sullivan, Managing Director said “We are particularly pleased to be ISO 27001 certified for another year, as it demonstrates that we have the correct processes and controls in place to keep data secure. This is particularly important for our new multichannel service as well as our established direct mail service”.

Positive is FSC Certified

Positive has just been FSC recertified! We are proud to have just completed our FSC audit allowing us to be FSC certified for our 9th Year in a row. FSC helps take care of forests and the people and wildlife who call them home.

FSC certified forests are managed to high environmental, social and economic standards. The harvested trees are then replanted or allowed to regenerate naturally. You can find FSC labels on many items including garden furniture, tools and of course paper.

Over the years the paper industry is becoming increasingly more aware of the environment and that is why it is so important for Positive to be part of the increasing awareness.

Here at Positive we only use paper that has come from responsibly managed and sustainable forests. Our paper sources use environmentally friendly methods of production and waste. All our waste paper is then collected for recycling.

To find out more on print and the environment read our blog ‘Is digital marketing greener than print?’
