Children 1st, the Scottish children's charity, is asking schools and businesses to raise funds for the organisation by holding sponsored tartan-themed events. Kilts for Kids will take place on 28 November and participants are asked to fundraise by holding events such as 'kiltaoke' - karaoke in kilts.

Sue Ryder Care will get the change from more than 19,000 staff payslips at betting and gaming company the Gala Coral Group. Participants will have the pennies in their pay rounded down to the nearest pound, with the extra pennies going to the charity. Gala Coral has pledged to raise £1m over the next 18 months.
