“We’re delighted to be partnering with Akuma as our Sport & Physical Activity Wear supplier, bringing together our community across the University to continue to build affinity and sense of belonging at the institution. For us, this process was all about ensuring our students were at the heart of the decision, and it was clear that Akuma hold these same values.
Over the course of the tender process, we had lots of discussions about social value, and how we can utilise this partnership to bring co-curricular learning opportunities to our students, whilst reducing barriers to sport and physical activity for students from low-income backgrounds as well as supporting the local boroughs that our campuses are based.
In addition, we were impressed by Akuma’s UK Manufacturing and recycled sportswear, ensuring we continue to contribute to the sustainability aims of the institution through reducing our carbon footprint. We’re hugely excited to start getting everything underway and look forward to seeing the whole King’s Pride on campus in September.” – Zak Evans, Business & Operations Manager
