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

The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association is to run a television advertising campaign designed to encourage people to support the charity by sponsoring a guide dog puppy with a monthly direct debit.

The sponsorship will help fund a puppy's training to become a qualified guide dog. The advert - which was developed by digital agency TDA - depicts an everyday journey that a qualified guide dog makes with its owner, including boarding public transport and negotiating steep staircases, crowds and roadworks. The advert will be broadcast on a number of satellite and terrestrial channels - including Sky and UKTV - from 15 September.
