The agency has been briefed to raise awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer and encourage women to take action and get checked.
Since we started working with The Reading Agency last year, one message has really stuck in my mind.
“We should be encouraged to read in a way that feels right for us”
Reading in a way that feels right for us. Not right for our school teachers, or well-meaning parents, friends or the people we follow on Instagram. For some, that might be a newspaper. For others, it might be a comic, a short story, or the biography of a sports star. A few might choose to read War and Peace, but I wonder how many of us have struggled on with a book because we’ve believed without question that it’s the ‘right’ thing to read?
The Association, which represents 90% of British commercial tomato growers, has tasked Stand Agency to get people talking about tomatoes, to raise awareness of the flavour, health, environmental and economic benefits of eating UK grown fresh produce.
Mental health and partying are not two things that traditionally go together, but last week party pros Percolate and East London rave venue Oval Space hosted a fundraiser for the mental health charity Mind.

Jessica joined as an intern a few months back, and we were so impressed we asked her to stay! Here’s a quick intro to our newest Account Executive.
How and why did you get involved in PR?
I did quite a bit of volunteering at school and uni, and I just wanted to shout about all the great things we did! Initially, I just wanted to get people as enthusiastic about charity as I was, and push for recruitment. Quickly, I started realising how much strategy was involved, and really got stuck into it.
Why did you want to stay at Stand Agency?
My first feeling at Stand was this overwhelming sense of encouragement, and can-do attitude. Anyone can do anything; you just have to give it a go. That’s what I love about Stand, no one doubts your capabilities, and everyone is there to help you be the better version of yourself. What more can you ask for?
Barnardo’s, which works to transform the lives of vulnerable children and young people, has been working with Stand Agency to support the amplification of its #BelieveinMe campaign.
We love to challenge public perceptions at Stand and that mantra is at the core of our work with our charity clients. Generating national coverage and impressive reach for our social campaigns is a given, but actually seeing the difference that campaign makes to real lives – that’s the true reward.
