Have you ever walked past a homeless person?

It's hard to know what to do isn't it? Should I toss 50p in their hat to assuage my guilt? Or walk on by? By supporting Byte Night you'll help Action for Children make a permanent difference to vulnerable young people. What's more, that help goes on and on, for as long as it takes.

Compound Media and Byte Night

This will be my 11th Byte Night so to mark it I thought I'd get back in contact with everyone that's slept out with me before. You can see what they thought of it in the panel opposite.

Each has been memorable in it's own way, from the small group that slept in Finsbury Square in 2002, to the 950 people that participated around the country last year.

What doesn't change is the humbling feeling when you hear the stories of the people we are helping. That and the dedication of the Action for Children team who look after some of the most vulnerable young people in the country.

It's staggering that there are still 100,000 young people every year sleeping rough with nobody to look after them. Staggering and shocking.

Join us this year and make a difference. We'll be here for as long as it takes...

People I've slept with

  • Mike has supported Byte Night for a decade. He has also supported many other sleepers and fund-raisers over the years - people like me, in fact - meaning a tremendous cumulative effort, worth backing again in 2013.
