What's New: The NSPCC, Ready and Essex Air Ambulance

Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

The NSPCC has launched a fundraising campaign called Stop 4 Tea. Customers at more than 200 Spar grocery shops will be offered cups of tea in return for donations, and some stores will host tea parties. The campaign is the latest element of a partnership between the NSPCC and Tates, the firm that owns the 200 Spar stores. The firm aims to raise £2m for the charity by the end of May.

Four fundraisers have travelled on foot from Chamonix in France to Zermatt in Switzerland to raise funds for disability charity Ready. The team completed the 114-mile journey, which involved crossing 23 glaciers in five days by skiing, walking and climbing.

Restaurant chain Gourmet Burger Kitchen will donate 25p from the sale of each 'kiwi' beefburger to the Save the Kiwi Whakitane Trust, which helps to protect the birds.

Essex Air Ambulance has raised £2,700 at a 'bike safe' show to promote road safety. The charity organised a fashion show called Safe 'n' Sexy at the event. It also asked people to sign up for its annual motorcycle run fundraising event, which will take place in September.
