The latest do-gooding venture at Karmarama was our Artarama night in which our simple aim was to look at some lovely art, bid on some lovely art, and raise a lot of money for some lovely charities.

In the end we had over 45 pieces, a cracking turnout and raised just under 12k for Age Uk and The White Ribbon Alliance. Not bad eh?! Special thanks to Mr Jamie Wylie and Ms Amy Leach who tirelessly sourced all the wonderful pieces, which included an original Rankin! Auctioneered by Dave, the night included lots of booze, lots of fun and Stuart Finlayson being auctioned off in a crochet gimp suit.

Until next year folks.

The hottest October since Octobers began

It has been a scorcher of a week, which can usually only mean one thing. Short shorts. And who better to model the classic short short than our very own Jamie Wylie?



Why do people never tell jokes about cheddar? Because they're always too cheesy!

Talking of cheese, we have been spreading our cheddar enthusiasm here at Karma towers. Following several factory tours, a whole load of farm visits and a brand new appreciation for the skill in Pilgrim Choice cheese grading, we decided to share the love with a night of cheese, wine and terrible jokes.

Kentucky Fried Goodness

Those of you who have entered Karma towers before will know that there is one thing which makes everybody here very happy. Food. So last Thursday, we were all very very happy.

At the agency meeting Wednesday night, our very own Ben Bilboul announced that two lucky people would be getting their hands on something many believed too exciting to actually exist. "Surely it can't be a real thing?" We asked. "Surely it is the thing of fast food fantasy?" But it does exist fellow chicken lovers, it really does...

The legendary KFC Chicken Cheque.

All we had to do to reach this kentucky coated prize was submit the most scandalous story about a fellow Karmarama/Kream/Kaper employee. Put chicken in the equation and suddenly loyalty goes out the window. The scandal came in good and proper - no really, stuff which would make Sid blush. Top of that list was the lovely Alex Holbrook whose story really did take the biscuit and who proved herself all the lovelier by offering her chicken cheque to the whole agency.

19 buckets, 120 pieces of chicken and 500 chips later, we thank you chicken Gods.
