Peter Owen, the founder of Lights-On Consulting is going to be spending his birthday (4th October) sleeping rough to raise money for charity as part of the annual Byte Night fundraising campaign. So far nearly 50 people and companies who have sponsored him and raised a fabulous £1,880 (£2,205 including gift aid) for Action for the Children charity. Peter adds “If everyone sleeping out manages to raise similar amounts it would be over £3.2 million for the cause! Hopefully that’s a few less children sleeping rough, trying to take their lives and being abused.
