Welcome to the Awards Blog!

 

iT4C Awards Trophy

iT4C Awards Trophy

Here at iT4C Towers we’re breaking into blogging to keep everyone up to date with the goings on for this year’s IT Volunteering Awards.

We’ll bring you all the news, views and updates regularly so you’ll know what’s happening. We’ll keep all the main information on the iT4C Awards Pages.

Over time this will grow into a general iT4C blog with Web 2.0 bells and whistles so the IT volunteering community can keep in touch wherever and whenever, but for now we’ll be taking it easy and focusing on our Awards.

The British Computer Society (BCS) have kindly sponsored this year’s awards along with appiChar, the leading IT consultancy for the not for profit sector. The Ceremony will be held at the BCS London HQ in Covent Garden on Thursday 19th February, 2009. There’ll be around 100 delegates from both the IT and third sectors to recognise and celebrate the best IT volunteers and IT volunteering projects over the past year.

And it’s not just limited to iT4C volunteers, it’s open to any IT volunteer in the country. Last year’s winners ranged from Tamsin Crothers setting up an online office space for geographically disperate trustee board to Paul Campbell creating a social networking site for service users at Sevenoaks Area Mind.

We hope to see you all there and you can book to attend via our main site.

Please leave your comments as any advice, support and constructive criticisms are all gratefully received.

  1. I’ve attended these awards in both 2006 and 2007 and both times been impressed and humbled by just how much dedication and hard work is put in by the volunteers.

    Looking back my blog post from 2006 is still in the ether at http://watfordgap.wordpress.com/2006/11/29/fishy-tales/ !

    Small organisations have been able to do so much more and reach so many more in their communities through the effort of the volunteers.

    Hope to hear lots more inspiring stories again this year!

  2. Dawn’s New Horizon attended the awards in 2007 we were a finalist.
    We have been inpressed by the dedication that went into the night. They helped raise our profile not only in Norwich but also in London.
    Giving our small organisation the help it needed.
    Many thanks to all that attended that night.
