Faiers, from The Only Way is Essex, is supporting a campaign by the British Heart Foundation to raise awareness of inherited heart conditions. Faiers, who is pregnant, is calling on mothers-to-be to bare their bumps and share photos of themselves doing so on social media. The campaign has been set up to highlight the 50 per cent chance that someone who has an inherited heart condition will pass it on to their unborn child.

The actor Peter Capaldi has helped to launch Barnardo's Story Time campaign, set up to highlight the importance of communication to a child's early development and raise funds for the charity. The retailer John Lewis will be hosting a series of book readings in stores by famous names, including the actor Emilia Fox, to promote the campaign.

The comedian Fred MacAulay welcomed visitors to the annual summer fete organised by the veterans mental health charity Combat Stress at Hollybush House in Ayrshire on 7 June.

The actor Jenny Agutter was the host at the Dulwich Park Fun Run in London, which raised funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. The Call the Midwife star, who is a patron of the charity, started the 5km and 10km races at the event and took part in a one-mile "buggy race" wearing 1950s clothes and pushing a 1950s pram.

Charlotte Hawkins, host of the ITV breakfast show Good Morning Britain, visited Bocketts Farm Park in Surrey on behalf of Kids for Kids, which helps children in Darfur, Sudan, through the provision of goats. She met animals at the attraction to raise awareness of the need for goats milk for children in Darfur.
