Reading, England, 5th July 2013
A team of Workbooks staff will sleep outdoors for a night at the Thames Valley Byte Night event, taking place on the 4th of October this year, roughing it in aid of homeless children in the UK.
Byte Night is the IT industry’s annual sleep out in support of Action for Children. Each year, hundreds of individuals and teams from across the technology and business community spend a night exposed to the elements in a bid to raise sponsorship and awareness of Action for Children’s work to help prevent youth homelessness.
Ian Moyse, Sales Director at Workbooks and a Thames Valley Byte Night Board Member, commented: “In the IT industry we often take for granted what we gain from the lucrative market sector that we work in. This is a chance to give something back and make a meaningful contribution to a worthy cause. We will be asking all our customers, business partners, suppliers, colleagues and contacts to donate to show support for the valuable work this charity does.”
The Workbooks sleep out team will be led by two Workbooks directors John Cheney, CEO, and Penny Lowe, Services Director.

About Byte Night
Byte Night is the technology industry’s annual ‘sleep out’ in support of Action for Children. Each year hundreds of individuals and teams from across the IT and business community spend a night exposed to the elements in a bid to raise sponsorship and awareness of Action for Children’s work, who focus heavily on supporting homeless young people. It all began 16 years ago when 30 individuals from the IT industry slept out and raised £35,000. Since then the event has grown to over 1000 sleepers taking part each year, raising an amazing £5.2 million since it began. The Thames Valley Byte Night will be taking place Friday 4th October in Forbury Gardens, Reading and Byte Night is looking for volunteers not only to give up their time and their bed for the night to raise money, but to get a feel for what some people have to go through every day.
