The musician, along with the Olympic heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill and the model Laura Bailey, have been unveiled as the faces of this year's Fashion Targets Breast Cancer campaign, which raises funds for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Proceeds from the sale of clothes and other items, which are being sold at high-street retailers including Marks & Spencer, River Island and Topshop, will go to the charity as part of the campaign. The images were taken by the photographer Simon Emmett.

Musicians including Lily Allen, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Brian May took part in a fundraising concert on 1 April at the Royal Albert Hall in London in aid of the children's charity Coram. The charity, which is the Albert Hall's charity of the year, raised more than £200,000 through the event.

Simon Cowell, the producer and talent show judge, was among the famous faces that attended an event this month at the Dorchester Hotel in London for families supported by the children's hospice Shooting Star Chase. The model Abbey Clancy and the reality show contestant Luisa Zissman also took part in the Easter Tea event, which included a performance by the singer Sam Bailey, who won the last series of The X Factor.

The former England cricketer Phil Tufnell has helped to place a time capsule in the grounds of the children's charity the Children's Trust in Tadworth, Surrey. Tufnell is vice-president of the charity, which organised the event to mark its 30th anniversary. Items placed in the capsule included letters from staff and children, photos, artwork and a cricket ball signed by Tufnell.

The actor and author David Walliams has recorded new voices for the 1970s Charley Says safety videos for the charity Electrical Safety First, which works to reduce deaths and injuries from electrical accidents. The charity has made two short videos, which use footage from the original public information films featuring the eponymous cat and his child companion.

The singer and musician Paolo Nutini has helped to launch a new charity partnership between the music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins Scotland and the music venue the SSE Hydro in Glasgow.
