What's New: Save the Children, Help the Hospices and the Stroke Association

Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

Save the Children has launched adverts in the press, in tube stations and on panels in London Underground carriages. The twist is that different phone numbers for text donations are displayed in the various adverts, and donors are then directed to different parts of the charity's website, depending on what prompted them to respond.

Poverty and famine charity Feed the Children will run a fundraising campaign, Breakfast2Live, urging people to organise breakfasts that raise money for its cause.

Help the Hospices will receive all the proceeds from sales of 'reindeer food' in branches of the bank Abbey. The packs, on sale for a suggested donation of £1, contain oats and glitter. The bank wants people to take part in a 5km Santa run in London on 13 December.

The Stroke Association has launched its third annual Stroke for Stroke campaign, which will challenge people to row 10km or more. The campaign, which will run from 25 to 31 January, has raised more than £70,000 since it was set up in 2008.
