On March 22nd, CEO Roger Harry slept rough at Paternoster Square, London, along with other technology and business CEOs from around the world. The sleepout was a great success and has raised a total of £110,979.97 for Action for Children so far, which is an amazing achievement.

Among the group of business leaders was Claire Vyvyan, Senior Vice President and General Manager for the Dell EMC, who paid a visit to Circle IT HQ last year, following the successful joint project for a new Dell EMC Network that was implemented at The University of Dundee.
Roger Harry said:
“Sleeping rough in the capital was a real eye-opening experience. Alongside the cold and the rain one of the hardest things was being kept awake by the bells chiming every 15 mins from St Paul’s Cathedral. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to get involved in helping to try and make a real difference and it definitely makes me appreciate how lucky I am to a warm bed to go home to every night”.
