Last chance to help this year's charity sleep-out

This is your last chance to support the 200-plus IT industry leaders who have signed up to sleep out near Tower Bridge for this year's annual Byte Night event on Friday 17 September.

The event, now in its seventh year, has so far raised more than £1m since it started in 1998. Computer Weekly has supported the initiative from the start. The money raised by Byte Night is used to fund children's charity NCH's efforts to help homeless children. NCH will donate 92p of every £1 raised by the IT industry directly to the charity's initiatives to help homeless children.

Before turning into their sleeping bags for a night on the hard ground, participants will, to judge from last year, enjoy a fun evening with a quiz, a charity auction and a singalong.

The event attracts a mix of people from all IT sectors: public and private, users and suppliers.
