FPSG Connect are delighted to be participating in Byte Night 2010 and raising funds for Action for Children. On 8th October 2010, we will ‘sleep rough’ in Holyrood Park, Edinburgh, with only the shadow of Arthur’s Seat to protect us from the elements. We will be joined by the great and good, or maybe just the mad, of the Scottish IT Community in an attempt to enhance awareness of youth homelessness.
The work Action for Children undertake is of tremendous value to children at risk so please support our enthusiastic team in raising money for this fantastic cause by visiting our donation page www.virginmoneygiving.com/fpsgconnect.
Byte Night is organised because of the homelessness crisis in our country. Their website says:
“Byte Night is the UK’s largest corporate sleepout, with individuals and teams sleeping rough to raise vital funds to prevent youth homelessness.
It all began in 1998 when 30 individuals slept out in London and raised £35,000. Since then Byte Night has now grown to 12 events and nearly 1500 people sleeping out in 2018. It is now one of the UK’s top 20 mass participation charity events and has raised over £12 million so far – but we aren’t finished yet!
By sleeping out, you will allow Action for Children to help thousands of young people build better lives by providing essential support, accommodation, education and training.”
A very big, FPSG Connect THANK YOU to all those who have already pledged money. Your contribution will assist training programmes, access to employment and housing for those youths which are most in need.
Here’s to Byte Night 2010!
