Action for Children is calling on local business inÂ CambridgeÂ to help raise money to tackle youth homelessness by signing up for this yearâ€™s Byte Night.
The event takes place on Friday 7 October and sees members of the business community spending a night sleeping outdoors atCambridgeÂ ScienceÂ ParkÂ to raise money for the childrenâ€™s charity.
Now in its 13thÂ year, Byte Night is Action for Childrenâ€™s largest fundraiser and has raised over Â£3 million for the childrenâ€™s charity. Last yearâ€™s sleep out saw 600 participants take part in locations includingÂ London,Â Manchester,Â Cambridge,Â EdinburghÂ andThamesÂ Valley.
Kirstin Broome, fundraising manager at Action for Children, said: â€œSince its inception 13 years ago, Byte Night has gone from strength to strength. The event has allowed us to continue to provide safe and secure accommodation to vulnerable youngsters at risk of homelessness. The support from theÂ CambridgeÂ area is second to none.â€
The millions of pounds raised so far have helped Action for Children support some of the UKâ€™s most neglectedÂ and vulnerable youngsters Ââ€“ providing them with secure accommodation, education and training, and ending the cycle of deprivation that so many get trapped in.
