Each year, over 500 people from the IT and business community give up their bed for one night to experience a little of what it might be like to be homeless. The money we raise helps Action for Children tackle the root causes of youth homelessness and gets thousands of children and young people off the streets and into secure accommodation with education and training opportunities.
It all began 11 years ago when 30 individuals from the IT industry slept out and raised £35,000. Since then the event has grown to 500 sleepers raising almost £470,000 in 2008 alone. Patrons, sponsors and sleepers include celebrities and leading figures, CIOs, systems developers, business managers, marketers and more.Byte Night sleepers
Each year, over 500 people from the business community give up their bed for one night to experience a little of what it might be like to be homeless and this year I will be joining them. We will be participating as part of the GFI Software team. Byte Night sleepers range from systems developers to CIOs and business managers to marketers who regularly return each year for a rewarding and memorable experience.About Action for Children
