Be a part of Byte Night 2018 – 5/10/18

Stewarding / Event Support volunteers needed for Action for Children in RG1

Byte Night is our biggest annual fundraiser and you can be a part of it! This year Byte Night is taking place on Friday 5th October, across 12 locations within the UK.

The event has now grown to 12 events and over 1500 people slept out in 2017.

Byte Night is one of the UK’s top 20 mass participation charity events and is the largest corporate sleepout having raised over £10 million since the first event.

Byte Night’s success is all down to its volunteers and it simply could not happen without their help and hard work on the day. With only months to go before the big event, we have begun recruiting for our volunteer army! There are many roles that we will need help with on the night, from registration to raffle selling and working the finance desk. We also have 3 different shift times across the day for set-up, reception and the sleepout.

Volunteer roles include:

  • cloakroom volunteers
  • bar staff
  • outdoor stewards
  • quiz volunteers
  • registration desk staff
  • sleeper site volunteers
