Atos team wins Prince’s Trust Million Makers Challenge

Posted on: March 22, 2012 by Mike Smith

I am proud to have been involved with the Atos Million Makers team which raised an astonishing £123,799.64 for the Prince’s Trust in their Million Makers Challenge. This fantastic achievement enabled the Trust, for the first time ever, to reach their goal of raising a £1m through the challenge.

I’d also like to extend my own personal thanks (and the thanks of the core team) to all of those organisations who joined us at our charity event; the proceeds of which contributed to this total – I asked several of my professional contacts and counterparts for their support. This event included an incredibly moving account by a young lady that reminded us all why were there – I know it had a profound impact on many of us. It was not just another corporate event. The many partners, suppliers and friendly competition that joined together in this common goal demonstrated a powerful human element beyond our normal work together. Something that will bind us in future.

A full press release has been published.
