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

Whizz-Kidz, the children's mobility charity, is set to benefit from a £250,000 marketing campaign by Procter & Gamble and the Co-Operative.

Three pence from the sale price of about 35 household products - including Pampers nappies, Bold detergent, Fairy Liquid and Herbal Essences shampoo - is being donated to the charity between 15 September and 26 October. The campaign is being advertised in various women's magazines and in newspapers, and is being plugged in shops. Funds raised will go towards providing children with mobility equipment, therapist support and wheelchair skills training, at a cost of £9,000 per child.

Daycare Trust, the national childcare campaign, is looking for daredevil supporters to help raise £10,000 by performing a sponsored skydive. Participants must raise a minimum of £395. Funds go towards the charity's parental outreach programme.

The NSPCC wants supporters to help raise £5,000 by entering this year's City Conker Cup in London on 2 October. Each team of three pays £195 to enter the tournament. The charity expects to exceed its Guinness World Records record for the largest number of conker matches played simultaneously.

Bliss, the baby care charity, is hoping supporters including Lawrence Dallaglio and staff from restaurants such as Pizza Express and Zizzi will raise £175,000 by cycling 933km across the Pyrenees. The challenge started on 26 September.
