St Richard's Hospice in Worcester has launched a new, fun fundraising mobile phone app - 'Bling My Bear' - to help raise cash for the charity. The app has been designed and hosted by UKITA member Borwell, a software company based in Malvern.
Andrea and Steve Borwell-Fox are keen supporters of the work of St Richard's Hospice and have been involved with the charity for over ten years.
Andrea said: "We simply couldn't resist the challenge of creating 'Bling my Bear'. We are delighted to donate this iPhone App to St Richard's Hospice. It's great to see latest technology being used in a fun way, raising essential funds for such a worthwhile local cause."
Phillippa Jones added: "We are very grateful to Borwell for all the work they have put in to creating Bling my Bear and all without any charges. It's a fantastic example of how a local company can help St Richard's by using their time and skills."
To buy the app just search for Bling my Bear on itunes. The app will be available for android mobile phones later in 2012.
