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

Cancer Research UK will host Sound & Vision 2007, a music and photography exhibition, on 26 February at Abbey Road Studios in London.

The event, to be hosted by singer Mica Paris and TV presenter Sarah Cawood, will feature performances by All Saints, Paris and Skye Edwards.

There will also be an auction of music artefacts, including images of Bob Marley, Sir Paul McCartney and Kate Bush.

Sir George Martin, long-time producer to The Beatles and the event's patron, said: "A superb selection of unseen photographs, artwork and memorabilia has been donated by some of the leading people in the business, and I am confident that this year we'll raise even more money for Cancer Research UK."

Last year's Sound & Vision event raised more than £130,000. More details are available at www.soundandvision2007.co.uk.

The Prostate Cancer Charity is holding the Real Man Cup five-a-side football tournament on 10 March. Team entry costs £120, £70 of which will go to the charity. The PCC hopes the tournament, to be held in Tottenham, north London, will generate £5,000 for its research and services.

The Army Benevolent Fund, which provides financial and practical support to soldiers, former soldiers and their families, hopes to benefit from the World's Biggest Curry Lunch. The aim of the event is for people to raise money for the fund by hosting their own curry lunches during Big Curry Week, from 16 April.

Samaritans has teamed up with drinks brand Firefly Tonics for a pair of Stress Down Days at the Harvey Nichols London store on 27 January and 1 February. Customers who buy a Firefly Chill Out drink at the store's food hall can enjoy a 10-minute massage.

The Art Fund, the charity that aims to save works of art for the nation, and the Tate are holding an online auction, during which they hope supporters will 'buy' brush strokes from JMW Turner's painting The Blue Rigi. They aim to raise the £2.45m needed to stop the picture being bought by an overseas collector. See www.artfund.org/savebluerigi.
