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

Centrepoint, the youth homelessness charity, is appealing to fashion-conscious supporters to buy a new T-shirt from high street retailer H&M to raise funds for its work.

The Swedish clothing company held a competition with London's XFM radio station to find a T-shirt design that captured the spirit of the London borough of Camden, and chose to donate the proceeds of its sale to Centrepoint. The winning design has been printed on 1,000 T-shirts for men and women and is available in Divided, H&M's new concept store in Camden, priced at £4.99. All proceeds go towards the charity's work in London.
