Comic Relief Holding Hackathon

Comic Relief is holding a hackathon event, with the support of mobile agency Fetch, designed to give developers a chance to produce an app supporting its Sport Relief charity event.

Taking place this Saturday (7 September) in London, the Comic Relief App Hack will give participants 10 hours to come up with and develop their ideas, with the best app getting a chance at being produced, marketed and distributed nationwide during Sport Relief 2014.

“We’re keen to make this year’s Sainsbury’s Sport Relief as inclusive as possible, which is where the App Hack comes in,” said Amanda Horton-Mastin, innovation director from Comic Relief. “With so many talented digital and mobile marketers and developers, we’re looking forward to a wealth of ideas around engagement and gamification, which fit with the brand, embrace the latest mobile tech and are truly contagious.”
