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

Farm-Africa and the National Farmers' Union have launched an appeal for funds to increase crop production in east Africa. The Africa 100 campaign is appealing for donations from agricultural buyers, retailers, food processors, UK farmers and the brewing industry.

FARM-Africa and the NFU hope to repeat the success of the Send a Tonne to Africa appeal, which was run 25 years ago in response to the Ethiopia famine. Funds raised will go towards running projects that will increase crop production in the region. Each project costs £130,000 a year to maintain, and the charity hopes to raise enough for nine projects.

The PDSA has launched a television appeal on cable and terrestrial channels asking viewers to sponsor animals with long-term illnesses. Supporters are encouraged to commit to a £5 or £10 monthly donation.

The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice is asking supporters to take part in the 10km Great Scottish Run in Glasgow on 7 September. Participants must pay £23.50 to enter.

Three Save the Children supporters are cycling from St Andrews in Scotland to Paris between 11 and 29 August. Jude Telford, Ian Crawford and Christine Mueller hope to raise £3,000.

Environmental charity WWF-UK is targeting potential supporters with an online campaign. The Adopt a Tiger appeal asks for a minimum monthly donation of £2.50. Supporters receive a welcome pack, including a soft tiger toy, a certificate and facts about tigers.
