Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

Martlets Hospice, in Hove, East Sussex, will hold a midnight walk in which more than 1,000 women will walk through Brighton wearing flashing bunny ears.

Last year's event raised £165,000 for the charity. This year's will take place on 18 June. Supporters will pay £12 to take part.

A community fundraiser will host an online coffee break to raise funds for The Meningitis Trust. David Wood, who works for the charity, will ask supporters for sponsorship on fundraising website JustGiving for a minimum of £2. In return, he will send them a 'virtual coffee' on 31 March by email or through social networking site Twitter.

The Riding for the Disabled Foundation is among the 26 charities that Iraq war veteran Phil Packer is supporting in this year's London Marathon. Packer, who suffered severe spinal cord injuries in 2008, will attempt to walk it in 26 hours. Each charity will have 26 days to raise as much money it can.

Cystic fibrosis charity the Simone Cowland Trust will hold an Easter-themed fundraising party in London on 1 April.
