Canon UK takes part in Byte Night 2016 charity event
In October 14 Canon UK employees selflessly gave up their beds to spend a night on the banks of the River Thames all in aid of Byte Night London 2016 organised by Action for Children. The annual ‘sleep out’ event saw the ‘Carry on Canon Campers’ team raise £9,500 that will go towards helping disadvantaged young people across the UK.
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 through no fault of their own. To date, over £806,000 has been raised from Byte Night with a target of £1.4 million to be raised by December.
