Ready steady bake – it’s the final of the FIG charity bake-off! After 11 weeks of baking, frosting and piping Nikita is crowned champion in the final round of our head-to-head patisserie knockout. It’s not all about tickling taste buds though, as we’ve raised money at the same time for Reuben’s Retreat. Based in Glossop, the charity provides support, counselling, activity days and short breaks for families of children with life limiting or life-threatening illnesses.
October: FIG on the up! – with another top 30 ranking in the prestigious Prolific North Top PR Agencies, benchmark survey of the North’s leading PR agencies.

The festive season sees us create and launch a special #TogetherAtChristmas hamper campaign for Marketing Partner LabelsPlus raising awareness about those who are alone and in need at this time of years… and FIG goes all elf-ish for the Alzheimers Society.
It’s been a great year all round and here’s to 2019!
