Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, or just enjoy the bankholidays, join us for our annual Xmas Party!Cheers, Opa, L'chiam, Ole', you know it will be a
good time!As the London Community and Events manager for Techmeetups, it is my job to providemembers with events. After my recent promotion to "Fun Manager," I am now responsiblefor ensuring that our events are actually really fun. Expect a snow machine, hot cocoa bar(aswell as wine and beer,) a visit from Santa himself, fun photo ops, great catered food, hotmulled wine, great raffle prizes, and an ugly Christmas jumper competition at this year'sXmas Party. We have partnered withCommunity Linksto help assist them in collecting toys
for children that without our help, probably wouldn't have anything to open on Christmasmorning. We ask that you please bring an unwrapped toy to donate to our efforts. We willbe hosting a company/group competition: the group that brings the most toys will havetheir organisation announced and promoted by us, as well as win a prize!
