What's new: Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

Breast Cancer Care has signed a fundraising and campaigning deal with fashion trade magazine Lingerie Buyer, whose readership includes department store buyers and boutique owners.

The charity hopes the partnership will raise funds and improve advice and information in stores on how to meet the needs of women who have undergone breast surgery.

February's issue features an article telling readers how they can fundraise for the charity by taking part in its events. The magazine has agreed to donate £5 from each subscription sold.

Murray Lindo, director of fundraising at Breast Cancer Care, said: "By working with us, Lingerie Buyer can deliver helpful and accurate advice and information."

The charity is urging supporters to join its summer fundraising walks in Oxfordshire and Derbyshire through its website, www.ribbonwalk.org.uk.

Mildmay, the HIV charity, is auctioning 'Coffee with Brad Pitt' on eBay for Charity to mark its Valentine's Day appeal. The lot consists of a signed, limited-edition print of the film star drinking coffee, and a coffee sachet. It is among more than 50 items the charity is auctioning on the website for the appeal.

The PDSA is auctioning the chance to rent a charity shop window this Valentine's Day. Romantics can place a marriage proposal or personalised special message for their loved one and decorate their local shop window with photographs and mementoes, with the help of the shop's staff. Supporters must offer their bid to a participating store, and the highest bidder with the most romantic story wins. The charity is promoting the auction on its website.

Save the Children is to benefit from sales of a new brand of fairly traded coffee. The manufacturers of the Fair Instant range guarantee growers a minimum price for their coffee. The coffee will be on sale in time for Fairtrade Fortnight from 26 February to 11 March, at supermarkets such as Tesco and Sainsbury's. The charity will receive 20p from every 100g jar and 50p from every 500g drum sold to go towards its work with children in Colombia.
