VP Communications & Campaigns, Sarah Honeycombe commented,
“We are delighted to have the hard work of the SURHUL team recognised by the Third Sector Excellence Awards. The calibre of previous winners and nominees is incredibly high and we are proud to be included in this year's shortlist. This logo was picked by students for students in August 2011 and we are pleased that its success is being recognised outside of Royal Holloway, University of London.”
General Manager Sean O'Donnell said: "The development of the rebrand was a major project for the organisation which was developed ‘in-house’ and conceived by our Marketing Co-ordinator Marek Nusl and we are delighted that we have been shortlisted for this important recognition. This nomination is testament to all of the hard work across the organisation to ensure the development and implementation of the SU branding over the past 18 months.
