Seven staff from the Co-operative's central data team in loss prevention pulled a 15-tonne, vintage Blackpool tram a quarter of a mile through Manchester on 9 October. They raised £1,000 for The Christie Charitable Fund, which funds projects at the Christie, the Manchester-based cancer hospital.

Beth Parker, director of service development at the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services, will walk 184 miles along the Thames path from the river's source in Gloucestershire to London to raise £10,000 for youth charities. The 10-day walk will start on 21 October.

The health charity Resources for Autism is running an online auction of art, including pieces by the artist Sir Peter Blake and the architect Lord Foster. Members of the charity's adult art class exchanged works with well-known artists. The auction runs until 24 October on eBay.

An 82-year-old woman from Merton, south London, ran the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon in London on 10 October to raise money for Help a London Child, run by the radio station Capital FM. Doreen Offredi finished the 13.1-mile race in 3 hours 15 minutes.
