The site is the brain child of Wendy Hubbard aged 71. During the 80’s and 90’s Wendy was a fundraiser for The Arthritis and Rheumatism Council and was awarded the Gold Award for Service and Achievement by ARC in 1980. She stopped taking an active role in fundraising due to health issues in the late 90’s.
In 2010 her brother in law lost a 10 year battle with Prostate cancer and her husband recently underwent heart surgery. Wendy decided it was time to start fundraising again and thought it was time charities used technology and on line services more. One of her son’s works in the online gaming industry and together they came up with the idea for www.mycharitybingo.com. The final piece of the jigsaw was added by her daughter who had recently run the Race For Life and had used a justgiving fundraising page for donations. Justgiving.com suggested they use their API search software within the site for players to choose a charity and the site was born.
Many bingo networks were approached to host the site but they all wanted in excess of £20,000 to build and set up the site. Eventually after many months www.aberrantsoftware.com a bingo website provider suggested an approach to www.functionalgames.com they loved the idea and offered to supply the site free of charge in partnership with Aberrantsoftware. All of the people involved in the project are like minded individuals who support charities and causes.
