The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists was granted a Royal Charter – one of only 1,000 to be awarded over the past 800 years – in a ceremony full of pomp and circumstance at St Paul’s Cathedral on 17 June. After the service, the Lord Mayor’s pikemen escorted the Royal Charter to Mansion House, where WCIT members celebrated with a formal white tie dinner.

 

The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists (WCIT), the City of London’s 100th livery company, celebrates its receipt of a Royal Charter.

WCIT has more than 750 members who volunteer their services to raise money for good causes. Prominent members include Microsoft founder Bill Gates, internet pioneer Vint Cerf, and Sir Tim Berners-Lee, creator of the world wide web. WCIT is supporting a range of charitable projects, including raising money to support an academy school in Hammersmith, London, that will be equipped with the latest technology.
