Ten teams battled it out on July 8 in a Lego Legends afternoon, which culminated in Team 6 reigning supreme with their ‘United Tower’ creation.
According to First Financial’s Rebecca Ruck, the social event was the first since Akambo Financial Group and First Financial merged in May.
Rebecca said the Lego Legends activity was symbolic of Akambo and First Financial moving into the same space to create an industry-leading financial services provider with a singular focus on providing clients with the best client experience possible.
Teams took on the challenge of building the tallest Lego tower to stand unassisted for more than three seconds.
“It was a great experience and a wonderful chance for all of us to get to know each other more,” Rebecca said.
And the event ended with a heart-warming surprise, with 15 children from Little Dreamers receiving brand new Lego to take home after the event.
Little Dreamers is Australia’s leading Young Carer organisation, supporting young people who provide unpaid care for a family member affected by disability, chronic or mental illness, addiction or frail age.
“It was great to see their smiling faces and support such a great cause,” Rebecca said.
The First Financial team is comprised of specialist financial advisers, associate advisers, adviser assistants, SMSF administrators, client service and operations staff and paraplanning teams.
