Refresh PR announces support for #Caketober

Love cake? Love Manchester? Then, like us, Forever Manchester’s Caketober event is for you!

Caketober is a month long celebration of cakes and fancy dress where companies, organisations and groups of friends are invited to put on bake sales in their home or office.

Caketober raises money for Forever Manchester, the Community Foundation for Greater Manchester.

In the last three years Forever Manchester has supported nearly 2,500 community projects and more than 484,000 people have directly benefitted from services or projects made possible by Forever Manchester's support and funding.

The team at Refresh PR is delighted to be supporting the event and we will be hosting a bake sale in our new Northern Quarter offices on Thursday 10th October at 11.30am.

Whilst we can’t promise that our cakes would pass the critique of Mary Berry, we will do our best to avoid any ‘soggy bottoms’!

If you fancy a slice of cake or (don’t want to risk our home baking and…) simply want to make a donation to Forever Manchester, visit our offices at 3e Tariff Street, Manchester at 11.30am on Thursday 10th October.

Champagne corks have been popping at Refresh PR this week as we celebrate moving into our new office and welcome three new recruits to our growing team.


We have relocated to the city’s stylish Northern Quarter, following a successful first half of the year which saw us scoop a number of significant new client wins, including the national PR campaign for the plastic plumbing and underfloor heating arm of national plastic piping manufacturer, Polypipe.


Joining our team at the new office will be account director, Sophie Smith. Previously at Tangerine PR where she was for over four years, Sophie will be working across B2B and consumer clients including Planitherm and Rare Creative Group. Sophie will also be heading up the Polypipe Plumbing & Heating campaign as well as Polypipe Home Solutions, the manufacturer’s consumer offering.

Recent graduate in Politics, Philosophy and Economics, Katherine Mountain, joins the team as junior account executive after working part time with us for the past 18 month alongside her university studies. Corey Kitchener is also new to the team and starts as junior account executive, having recently graduated in journalism from Sheffield Hallam University. Katherine and Corey will be working with both trade and consumer clients as well as supporting the team with new business opportunities.


Refresh PR’s founder and managing director, Laura Mashiter, said: “Refresh PR has had a fantastic few months, where we have seen real growth in the business with our national award success, client wins and with new team members.


“The site on Tariff Street fits perfectly with our future expansion plans and allows us to welcome clients, suppliers and visitors to a self-contained space that’s unique to us. It’s exciting to see what the future holds for Refresh PR!”
