Bytes Security Partnerships are delighted to announce we will be sending a team of our staff to take part in Byte Night 2012's Thames Valley event, in aid of Action for Children. This year the charity event is hoping to reach the £5million mark in fundraising since its launch 12 years ago. We are aiming to help by raising at least £5,000 as a team and raise awareness of youth homelessness amongst our customers, colleagues, friends and family.
What: Byte Night Thames Valley When: Friday 5th October 2012; 6pm-6amWhere: Forbury Gardens, Reading, BerkshireSleeper Targets: Individual target - £1000, Team fundraising target - £5,000Byte Night is the IT industry sleep-out to raise vital funds for Action for Children to help tackle the root causes of youth homelessness. At least 75,000 children and young people experience homelessness each year, and of those, 1 in 3 will attempt suicide and 1 in 7 will be physically or sexually assaulted. Solving youth homelessness is about more than taking people off the streets. Action for Children works to prevent youth homelessness through early intervention by ensuring that young people across the UK are given the support they need before it's too late.
