2i Testing are pleased to announce that our Charity of the Year for 2018 is Byte Night.
About Byte Night
Byte Night is now the UK's largest annual sleep out event, with individuals and teams from technology and business services sleeping out to raise vital funds to prevent youth homelessness. The sponsored sleep out is set to take place over 12 locations in 2018.
Last year's event saw over 1500 employees from the technology and business sectors sleep out overnight in 11 locations across the UK, raising £1.2m. As 2018 marks Byte Night's 20th year, they are hoping to raise £1.6m for Action for Children and we are delighted to be able to support this great cause.
2i teams have taken part in the last 5 years of sleep outs, braving the October cold in Edinburgh with our woolly hats and sleeping bags and we’ve raised thousands of pounds in the process. In addition to raising valuable money for Action for Children, our team also get an insight into the harsh conditions homeless people face every night.
On the sponsorship, 2i Testing's Managing Director, Dave Kelly said, “Byte Night is a charity that I’m proud to have been involved in as a board member since 2009. I’m delighted that 2i have made this our Charity of the Year for 2018 as the work that Action for Children do for young people that are made homeless through no fault of their own is some of the most inspiring I’ve ever seen.”
