Million Makers Team Evolve hits new Atos record
The 2018 Million Makers, Team Evolve, have successfully raised a fantastic total of £307,276.82, the biggest amount raised so far by Atos for The Prince’s Trust!
The team kicked off their fundraising challenge in May 2018, organising successful events throughout the year. This included hosting the first Comedy Night show in London, participating in the third 'IT on the High Seas' regatta and introducing the first Atos Charity Golf Day at Turnberry in Scotland.
On Monday 11 February, the team were awarded third place in the South East and East region, Million Makers regional finals competition. Congratulations to Kieran Bolko, Chair of Team Evolve, who was rewarded ‘Outstanding Individual Award’. Kieran was one of two winners within the region, nominated by his peers in the team and Atos mentors due to his brilliant teamwork, dedication and leadership skills.
Regional winners are invited to the national Million Makers final which takes place in March alongside the prestigious Prince's Trust Awards.
The national competition for the Million Makers 2018 teams will be announced on Wednesday 13 March – look out for further news on Team Evolve results!
