Action for Children’s 'Byte Night' sleep out has raised over £10m since 1998, and more than £1m for the fifth year running. With funds still coming in and the grand total to be announced at the end of November, the £1m mark was passed just a few weeks after the event took place on 6 October.

More than 1,500 hardy sleepers from the tech and corporate worlds slept under the stars at 10 sites across the UK. In London, Action for Children chief executive Sir Tony Hawkhead and 250 sleepers were joined by celebrity supporters including actor Jenny Agutter OBE (from BBC TV’s Call the Midwife), former Shadow Chancellor, Ed Balls, journalist and broadcaster, Angela Rippon, and TV presenter, Anthea Turner.
