Giving back to our community

Here at Atlas we try to do our bit to give something back to our wonderful local community.

In 2017 we were delighted to take part in The Royal Manchester Childrens Hospital Many Hands Campaign.

Our Team commited to raise a minimum of £1000, over a period of five months, for this fantastic cause and charity.

For most of our team, being in their first employment, this was the first time that they'd worked on a fund raising idea.

The team certainly came up with some innovative ones.

We sold our Gin of the Week, Manchester Zymurgorium Limited Edition Vigil Gin, for one week, and all of the profits went to the campaign.

We also collected donations at our Tonic Taste Offs, monies from a Gin Masterclass Auction, EBay sales of the Vigil Gin empty bottle, which is very beautiful, received a donation from Booker of 1000 Tonics to support our efforts and the proceeds from our trip to London, with Virgin Trains on World Gin Day, were also donated.

Our Team raised in excess of £5300 and were chosen to pitch to Theo Paphitis, Sheila Begum and Maurice Watkins, Dragon's Den style.

This was most of our Team's first ever pitch and we were thrilled to be chosen as overall winners for 2017!

Our efforts continue with a permanent RMCH Manchester Marmalade Cocktail on our menu and all profits go to the charity.

We are also partnering with Green Cloud IT, another 2017 Finalist, at this years Emerald Ball in October.

This is a great cause which truly makes a difference. If you can contribute something, however small, we also have collection boxes in the bar.
