Action for Children is calling on local business in Cambridge to help raise money to tackle youth homelessness by signing up for this year’s Byte Night.
The event takes place on Friday 7 October and sees members of the business community spending a night sleeping outdoors atCambridge Science Park to raise money for the children’s charity.
Now in its 13th year, Byte Night is Action for Children’s largest fundraiser and has raised over £3 million for the children’s charity. Last year’s sleep out saw 600 participants take part in locations including London, Manchester, Cambridge, Edinburgh andThames Valley.
Kirstin Broome, fundraising manager at Action for Children, said: “Since 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 the Cambridge area is second to none.”
The millions of pounds raised so far have helped Action for Children support some of the UK’s most neglected and vulnerable youngsters – providing them with secure accommodation, education and training, and ending the cycle of deprivation that so many get trapped in.
