Atos Decarbonisation Gala Dinner in support of The Prince’s Trust
After a year of suspension due to a pandemic, the 2021 Atos Million Makers team hosted its annual Atos Million Makers Gala Dinner at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London on Monday 6 December 2021, raising funds for The Prince’s Trust.
This was the first Decarbonisation Gala Dinner of this kind, highlighting the critical link between supporting future generations and environmental innovation.
This year’s Atos Million Makers team, Team Elevate, is Atos’ 11th team to compete in the Million Makers competition, with the aim of breaking the collective milestone of two million pounds being raised by Atos’ Million Makers teams. As a group of people, Team Elevate is composed of nine individuals who are early within their career at Atos. They are committed to raising money for The Prince’s Trust by delivering exciting and innovative events and held some incredible fundraising events across the UK despite the challenges that the year brought to all.
