The team in AKA Manchester have donned their pinnies and floured their rolling pins once again to raise money for charity through an annual bake sale.
On Friday 15th June, all of aka’s offices internationally took part in a Big Cake Sale to support charity ShelterBox’s Big ShelterBox Week.
Today, in an exciting aka first, all of our international offices will be baking and eating cakes on the same day to raise money for the same cause.
aka’s Make Yourself More Interesting initiative is a fun internal competition that rewards anyone with a creative proposal to make themselves that little bit extra special. One of our winners this year was Client Services Account Executive Alex Johnson, who pledged to get as far from aka offices in London as he possibly could for £500.
Throughout the year aka runs an entertaining initiative called ‘Make Yourself More Interesting’. With a budget of £500, staff are invited to propose how they would use the money to give themselves something extra, whether that involves mastering a new skill, going on the adventure of lifetime, giving something back to the community or just some pure unadulterated fun!
Four intrepid members of aka staff have successfully trekked up Mount Kilimanjaro with the key aim of raising funds for our two good causes this year, the Nanyuki Preparatory School in Kenya and a selection of elite Paralympic athletes.
Last Thursday saw the opening of our PAM’s pop up pub, organised by aka’s Promotions and Marketing department.
Never a company to do things by halves, aka are attempting something different to make a difference.
