What's New: Street Child Africa, Cystic Fibrosis Trust, SeeAbility and ABF The Soldiers' Charity

Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

Street Child Africa will receive a share of the proceeds from the sale of paintings from a new contemporary art exhibition. Gene Meme will be shown at the Crypt Gallery underneath St Pancras Church in London, from 10 to 20 June. The money raised will fund apprenticeships for children in Ghana.

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust will launch a Big Cake Bake campaign to mark cystic fibrosis fundraising week, which runs from 17 to 23 May. The charity will ask supporters to raise funds by holding coffee mornings and cake sales at schools and in workplaces.

Eye care charity SeeAbility is planning to invest £1m over the next three years to increase its roster of regular donors. The charity will encourage potential supporters to sign up by inviting them to try 'simulation glasses', which show them what life is like for people with visual impairments. It hopes to raise £3m through the investment.

ABF The Soldiers' Charity has received £102,000 from ticket sales for the Ideal Home Show in London last month. Event organisers donated 50p to the charity from the sale of each ticket to fund home adaptations for injured soldiers.
