We did it 3!

Some of the chill was taken out of the cold October night with our own wood burning stove provided by Mike Blakeley of Chimfix, the Wood Heating Company. Mike also provided us with logs which kept us going through the night.

Is Andrew Fisk of Tagish looking for somewhere to plug in his electric blanket?

We did it 2!

The Fishermans Lodge provided us with a hearty meal to keep us going in our efforts. Jocelyn Maxfield owner of the Fishermans Lodge who also slept rough with us is pictured (right) with Claire Glynn and Pete Clark. Can you see the spooky spectre on the left of this photo, did we have an additional uninvited guest at our sleep out in aid of Byte Night on Halloween?

I certainly seem to have been spooked by something!

We did it!

Well we did it, we spent last night under the stars, literally. There were only a few stars in the sky but there were 13 stars in the grounds of The Fishermans Lodge in Jesmond Dene. Shortly after midnight on the spookiest night of the year we retired to our "luxury" accomodation outside of The Fishermans Lodge. After a very cold week the temperature was not too bad to start with and we all thought this was going to be easier than we first thought.

For the first couple of hours we talked and enjoyed a couple of warming brews around our camp fire. Pete Clark of Bond and Claire Glynn of Atomic Web Solutions get into the spirit with the spirits on Halloween (left). Claire Jerrard of Sage enjoys a cuppa (perhaps with a drop of brandy Claire?)
It was all in aid of Action for Children and 2 brave souls from the charity braved the elements with us. Currently our efforts have raised over £3000 and we are well on our way to £4000.
