• Canon UK takes part in Byte Night 2016 charity event

        • Canon UK has raised £9,500 as part of the Byte Night London 2016 charity event on the 7th October. The money raised by the team will go to event organisers Action for Children and help disadvantaged young people across the UK.

          The annual ‘sleep out’ event saw the Canon team, consisting of 14 employees, give up their beds to spend a night on the banks of the River Thames. They joined 1,250 other sleepers from across the technology and business sector to support some of the 80,000 young people who find themselves homeless in the UK every year. To date, over £806,000 has been raised from Byte Night with a target of £1.4 million to be raised by December.

          Bob Pickles, Director of Public Sector Business Development and Public Affairs at Canon said, “we’re honoured to be part of Byte Night this year and to have contributed towards raising vital funds that are needed to help children and young people across the UK. In line with our company ethos, Kyosei – living and working together for the common good – we’re proud to be giving back to the community and help make a difference to the lives of young people.”

          Byte Night is Action for Children's biggest annual fundraiser and each year, hundreds of people from the technology and business arena give up their beds for one night in over 10 UK locations. 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 it first began.

          Founded over 145 years ago, Action for Children support more than 300,000 children, young people and families every year from over 650 services.  Working with children, young people, parents and careers, Action for Children are not only involved in fostering and adoption, but also with schools, local councils, the disabled and much more.
