People working in the IT industry, whether users or suppliers, rarely have an opportunity to take our families, colleagues or friends to a fun, relaxed event with like-minded individuals.

On Sunday 27 June, everyone is welcome to just such an occasion in the spacious grounds of one of the most exclusive venues in London, the Honourable Artillery Company, in the heart of London, near Moorgate tube station.

The event, the seventh annual charity walk, is organised by the City livery company for IT, the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists.

You have a choice of two walks through some of the most interesting parts of the City of London, returning to the starting point where a jazz band will be playing and cream teas will be available. Children are particularly welcome and a bouncy castle will be laid on for them.

Several hundred people are expected and all money raised from the walk will go to the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists' Charitable Trust. This leverages IT professionals' expertise to help disadvantaged people.

The event, supported by Computer Weekly, will also be an excellent opportunity to meet a cross-section of the 650 or so members of the WCIT and hear about the valuable services to education and charity this organisation performs.

For example, it drew on industry resources to install information suites for terminally-ill children in all the UK's children's hospices. The WCIT, the 100th City livery company, also organises seminars and events to help influence the influencers in IT-related matters.
