Put Sunday 27 June in your diary for a relaxed charity walk in the City of London with your family, friends and a group of like-minded IT professionals.
And just 10 days later, keep the evening of 8 July free for this year's Intellect ICT Charity Ball, also in London, which aims to raise £30,000 to provide an IT suite for autistic children.
Both activities are supported again this year by Computer Weekly.
In addition to raising money for a good cause, the IT Charity Walk will enable participants to see parts of London that are normally closed to the public. Organised by the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists, this year's walk starts and ends in the extensive grounds of one of London's most exclusive clubs, the Honorable Artillery Company, which is situated close to Moorgate Tube station.
The Intellect ICT Industry Ball, at Lincoln's Inn Fields, will benefit the Treehouse Trust, a London-based charity which runs an educational centre of excellence for children with autism and related communication disorders. The event has several heavyweight sponsors, including IBM, Intel and Microsoft, and is taking bookings at £1,450 + VAT for a table for 10.
