Twelve charities, including Samaritans, and the transport charity Sustrans, have signed up to a new mobile phone app that enables users to help charities.

The app, called Do Some Good, has been developed by the mobile phone company Orange.

It will allow users to spend five minutes helping charities by providing them with information on their phones, such as reporting incidents of bullying to Beatbullying’s Cybermentors scheme or submitting information about the location of local play areas from a mobile phone handset.

A statement from Orange said it would expand the app in future so more charities could use it and more volunteering activities could be carried out.

The 12 charities that users can volunteer for using the app are: Samaritans, Groundworks, Cybermentors, Guerrilla Gardening, Future Morph, Photofoundation, WCAFI, the Young Foundation, Sustrans, Mission:Explore, the Sustainable Restaurant Association and Practical Action.
