In October, here at Atlas Cloud set all our focus on raising money for our Byte Night sleep out. With our Just Giving page and help from our friends at Sage, we managed to raise £5,777.46 for the charity Action for Children.
You can read our blog all about the fundraiser here.
Now, it has been confirmed that Byte Night has raised £1 million for the fourth consecutive year! This total will be exclusively donated to Action for Children to allow them to keep up with their life-changing work.
Although the sleep out is done and dusted, it’s not too late to make a donation to help even more young people across the country. Click here to donate.
Here at Atlas Cloud, we would like to say well done to all those who participated and a massive thank you to those who donated. This is such a huge achievement which will make such a difference.

ABOUT BYTE NIGHT
Byte Night is Action for Children’s biggest annual fundraiser; a national ‘sleep-out’ event. Each year, hundreds of like-minded people from the technology and business arena give up their beds for one night to help change the lives of vulnerable young people. It all began in 1998 when 30 individuals slept out in London and raised £35,000. Since then Byte Night has grown to 10 UK locations and over 1200 people slept out in 2016. Byte Night is one of the UK’s top 20 mass participation charity events and is the largest charity sleep-out having raised over £8.4 million since the first event.
