What's new: Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

Cornerstone, The Mouth Cancer Foundation, Acorns Children's Hospice, Feed the Children ans The Prostate Cancer Charity feature list week.

Cornerstone, the charity for disabled people in Scotland, is asking companies to take part in its sponsored cycle challenge. The appeal, which is fronted by former Miss Scotland Nicola Jolly, involves office employees completing a round-the-world route on exercise bikes. Participants are encouraged to pay a £20 entrance fee, and companies buy the bikes for £495 each. They are also encouraged to donate them as prizes after the event. The charity hopes to beat last year's totals of £58,000 raised and 102,127 miles cycled. Events are scheduled to take place in the autumn, between 23 September and 13 October.

The Mouth Cancer Foundation is asking 1,000 supporters to enter a free sponsored 10km walk to raise funds for survivors of the disease. The charity hopes to raise more than £30,000 at the event, which takes place in Hyde Park, London, on 20 September.

Sophie Robinson, 10, a wheelchair-using beneficiary of the Midlands-based Acorns Children's Hospice, is raising money for the charity through a 1km event in Worcester in June.

Feed the Children is asking supporters for donations of sanitary towels and underwear to its Pads and Pants Appeal, which aims to help girls in Uganda, Kenya and Zimbabwe who are missing school because of their periods.

The Prostate Cancer Charity is embarking on a fundraising and awareness drive with its charity ambassador, the company Purple Ronnie. It will be launched in the run-up to Father's Day 2009.
