Sopra Steria sponsors Byte Night Northern Ireland

Friday 6 October 2017

Pavilion at Stormont, Belfast

Byte Night is Action for Children's biggest annual fundraiser; a national ‘sleep-out’ event. Each year, hundreds of like-minded people from the technology and business arena give up their beds for one night to help change the lives of vulnerable young people.

Our Northern Ireland team is passionate about making a difference and 8 team members from our Northern Ireland office will be joining the ‘sleep-out’  to raise money for Action for Children and the important work they do across the province.

We are also delighted to be sponsoring the 2017 event, providing breakfast to those who will have spent a tough night out under the stars.

Delivery Manager Phillip Burnside is working with colleague Dermot Boyle to lead the Sopra Steria presence in 2017, “This is my first time taking part in Byte Night and whilst I’m unsure if there will be much sleep on the night, I’m certain it will be an interesting event – but the difference is the next morning we will all return to our homes with full fridges and cosy beds, which for many children and young people living in UK this simply isn’t the case. I feel proud to be involved with Byte Night to help raise awareness for their plight and through fundraising efforts make it possible for Action for Children to provide further support, which can really help put their lives back on track.”
