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

The Manchester United Foundation is hosting a family Santa Run at the club's Old Trafford stadium to raise money for itself and its six charity partners.

Participants in Santa suits are challenged to run a one-mile route around the stadium. The New Children's Hospital Appeal, the Legacy Rainbow House, Francis House Children's Hospice, Christie's, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and the Children's Society will all benefit from funds raised on the day. There will also be Christmas stalls and carol singers after the event. Entry costs £10 per person and includes a Santa suit. Alternatively, families can pay £20 for a Santa suit and three hats.

The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is asking people to donate their old mobile phones and printer cartridges to its recycling appeal. Any cash raised will go towards patient and family support and cancer research.

Scope hopes to raise £200,000 with a new direct mail appeal. Recipients are asked to write messages for disabled children on paper chain segments and return them with donations. All the segments will be connected to make a chain.

The Douglas Macmillan Hospice is asking supporters to forgo a drink and donate the price of a pint in participating pubs. Get One In is part of the charity's 2008 Christmas Pub Campaign.

StreetSmart, the charity that raises funds for other homelessness charities, is asking restaurant-goers to add £1 to their bills until 31 December. The money will be donated to homelessness charities operating close to participating restaurants.
