Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

The National Autistic Society will receive profits from Lego's first UK charity calendar. The calendar includes 12 seasonal scenes, featuring Lego characters in a variety of situations. Lego is the NAS's charity partner for the period from 2008 to 2010 and has pledged to raise £80,000 for the charity.

The Funding Network is hosting its Climate Change Funding Day in London on 26 September, when five charity projects will pitch for a £5,000 grant. There will then be a session where delegates can make open pledges to support the projects. The TFN-funded film The Age of Stupid will also be shown.

The third Petts Wood Runners 10k race to raise money for Harris HospisCare will take place in Bromley, London, on 11 October. Each competitor will receive a medal for taking part.

Leonard Cheshire Disability has launched a new teaching aid for primary schoolchildren that doubles as a fundraising resource. Its space-themed Readability teaching pack encourages children to get sponsorship to carry out tasks that improve reading and writing skills.
