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.
aka’s digital division, connect, are honoured to have designed a brand new website for the Bravo 22 Company – a project created in partnership with charity Masterclass, the Royal British Legion and the Royal Theatre Haymarket. The Bravo 22 Company has been established to give wounded, injured and sick military service personnel a recovery capability programme.
At aka, we are always looking for new ways to make a difference. Over the last year, we have been supporting two charities that we are passionate about. From sponsored Marathons through to bake sales, we have managed to raise £8,728.26 that will be split between both Nanyuki Preparatory School in Kenya and the Paralympic athletes we are sponsoring ahead of London 2012.
