So last week I attended the UKVMUG and I was fortunate enough to speak there (which is another blog post) but myself and Rob Bishop decided to auction off some of our ‘swag’ bags to raise some money for Charity. I also think this is great as I know some people can’t make it to VMworld as I know I alway wanted to go at the beginning of this awesome journey I am on! Either way here is some pictures of the bags below, we had some awesome prizes such as a keep warm coffee mug, SNES and signed books
After a quick run around at lunch and between all of our sessions we managed to raise an amazing £177 which far exceeded my expectations and a massive thank you everyone who donated and to Kev for donating this for us as VMware would double it
that’s £177 donated to Aquabox as raised by the awesome folks at @UKVMUG on Thursday. Matched funding through the @vmware Foundation should double that – thanks to everyone who took part, and my employer for doubling the amount going to charity! @MyVMUG #UKVMUG #vExpert pic.twitter.com/gYXtxMYmFC

I certainly hope I can do another one of these soon and maybe do it online next time as so many people wanted to pay by card! Or maybe this is another VMware Code project in the making 😉
Also a massive congratulations to our winners of the bags! I never managed to get a photo!
