Action for Children @ByteNight

I’m a lucky, lucky bugger. I have a wonderful fiancée, great friends and colleagues, I live in a warm, dry place and have a fun job. I’m male and white, in a sexist, racist world. I have access to good healthcare, and pay almost nothing directly for the medicines I need. Chances are that most folk who read this blog share a lot of the same luck.

But I’ve always known that many people don’t have anything like so much luck, so when a good, slightly mad chance is thrown my way to do something for others, I’m happy to take it on.

So this Friday evening, I will be joining my colleagues Sally Smith – Edinburgh Napier University, Ben Paechter, Adrian Smales and others at Byte Night 2017, an IT sector initiative to raise both money and awareness of disadvantaged and homeless children with the Action for Children charity. You can read more about Action for Children here: https://www.actionforchildren.org.uk

 We’ll be gathering sleeping (I hope) out in Charlotte Square Gardens, with the aim of raising a lot of money for a very good cause. So if you wish to sponsor us, please visit Team Napier’s fundraising page at https://www.bytenight.org.uk/register-for-byte-night 
 
And if you’re in Edinburgh and you’d like to come and support us in our shivering for a while, that would be fabulous too.
