What's New: The Alzheimer's Society, Harris HospisCare, Crusaid and ChildLine

Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

The Alzheimer's Society has launched an Old Jewellery Appeal, asking people to donate jewellery using its website. Former Bond girl Britt Ekland, who is a patron of the charity, is supporting the campaign, which aims to raise £125,000.

Harris HospisCare in Bromley, Kent, is asking supporters to abseil down the side of what is believed to be the world's tallest hospital tower before it is renovated next year. Participants must raise at least £175 in sponsorship before abseiling down Guy's Tower in Southwark on 5 September.

HIV and Aids charity Crusaid will mark its 21st anniversary with the Walk for Life, a 10km walk through central London in fancy dress. The walk will take place on 6 June and will pass the London Eye, Tower Bridge and St Paul's Cathedral. The event raised £325,000 last year.

The retailer Superdrug has started selling badges to raise funds for ChildLine. The store launched the badges on the weekend of Valentine's Day and will sell new ones to mark Mothering Sunday and Easter. The badges promote the NSPCC's How U Feeling? campaign to raise awareness of ChildLine's new online service.
