So I was having a look around at a few blogs over the weekend and I read the following really interesting post:
It made me think about using this blog to highlight a charity a few mates and I run in our spare time called the Silicon Cup – the idea is simple:
- 2 days of sailing per year in one huge event
- The IT Industry at large with their vendors, suppliers and customers – Vodafone, O2, Accenture, Doherty, TBS, SUN and IBM – you name it they come
- 800ish people, 80ish yachts ranging from World Class yachts to very very simple sailing boats racing and partying for 2 days
- Best value corporate hospitality money can buy
So far we have raised around £200,000 for children’s charities over the last few years, if you fancy 2 great fun days in September and want to give something back then please get in touch with myself through the blog or directly through the Silicon Cup website – thanks!
