Story

On Friday 8 October, I will be joining 4 people who are as brave or nuts as I am - Mark Littlewood, Bill Thomson, Vero Pepperrell and David Marle - in sleeping rough on the streets of Cambrige (rough that is after a session in the local pub, no doubt)...

IT professionals in a sponsored sleep-out on the streets of Cambridge in aid of Action for Children, as part of the funkily named Team Miscellany.

There are many reasons why children and young people can find themselves vulnerable and without a safe, secure place to live. Byte Night raises money to help Action for Children tackle the root causes of youth homelessness.

Each year, at least 75,000 children and young people experience homelessness. One in three attempt suicide and 1 in 7 young runaways are physically or sexually assaulted.

With your support, not only can we help keep thousands of children and young people off the streets and away from the risk of physical and sexual assault, we’ll also help them build better lives with secure accommodation, education and training opportunities.

Visit http://www.bytenight.org.uk/ for more information on the difference Byte Night makes.

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donation you feel you can make.
