The RSPCA has launched an appeal asking people to donate old beach towels to help save more than 40 seals being cared for at the East Winch Wildlife Centre in Norfolk. The centre uses 120 towels a day to hold the seals while they are being fed and its stocks are almost exhausted. Collection points have been set up at Tesco stores in Norfolk.

The Helen Rollason Cancer Charity, which provides support for cancer patients, will plant 10,000 bulbs on 1 November in Central Park, Chelmsford. It will ask people to sponsor 25 bulbs for £10 in the hope of raising £5,000.

Investment bank Societe Generale organised its own football World Cup last weekend at the London Soccer Dome. Each team raised funds for a different charity, with the team representing England hoping to raise £3,500 for Friends of the Elderly.

A former beneficiary of Fairbridge, which works with disadvantaged young people, will be running the New York Marathon on 7 November in aid of the charity. Tony James, who was helped by Fairbridge when he was homeless, is aiming to raise £3,500 for the charity.
