Tractor challenge

- Two retired businessmen from Aberdeenshire raised more than £5,000 for a local urological cancer charity, Ucan, by driving their tractors from Land's End to John O'Groats earlier this year. It took Ken Ross, who is 64, and John Goodfellow, 72, seven days to complete the challenge.

- A man who recently set up a charity for stray dogs called Second Chance Dog Rescue will be living like a dog for a week to try to raise £2,000. From 4 December, Matthew Hall will live in a kennel for 100 hours, with two half-hour breaks a day in which to run around. He will not be allowed to talk and will need to bark to get attention.

- Dave Rutherford, co-founder of the charity Grace Children's Village, has set a challenge for 1,000 people to do a million sit-ups, push-ups or star jumps between them in January to raise money for a programme that supports children in a Ugandan village.

- Beating Bowel Cancer has launched the £3 Bowel Cancer Challenge: it asks supporters to collect £3 from each of 10 friends to help raise £15,000. The cash will go to a digital campaign to raise awareness of bowel cancer.
