Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

IT Relief, a close cousin of Comic Relief, is doing what it does best, and encouraging IT couch potatoes to chip in for a good cause. Fancy a bit of fund raising? Then read on… On 11 and 12 September IT Relief is running an event called KIDS Bike ride - a 240 mile cycling trip from Yorkminster to Westminster with a stop over at Newark. To take part, you need a £120 deposit and sponsorship of an extra £280. This will cover B&B at the stopover, and food and drink during the ride. If cycling is not your bag, you could always jump out of a plane. For only £350 in sponsorship, you too can defy death. Call Angela Taylor on 0181 969 2817 and don't forget to mention IT Relief. Other options to fill your 'do-good' quota for the century include the next London Marathon, or the New York Marathon on Guy Fawkes 2000. You need to raise £2,000 (it being Y2K and all) for this one, and if you want to do it, move fast as places are limited. Or, if the thought of all those burning calories is enough to send you screaming for a Mars bar, just call the hotline and make a donation. (UK) 0704 4000 989, or email at helpkids@itrelief.org. ®
