What's New: Transaid, Ssafa Forces Help, Sport Relief and the NSPCC

Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

International development charity Transaid is looking for intrepid fundraisers to go on a cycle ride in Tanzania in November or a trek in Ethiopia in February 2011. Participants must pay a registration fee of £299 and raise at least £3,000 in sponsorship. Last year's event was in Zambia.

Ssafa Forces Help is marking its 125th anniversary by asking people to raise £125 in any way - from bathing in baked beans to bungee jumping - to support servicemen and women. The Target 125 campaign will run throughout 2010.

Sport Relief is teaming up with the Manchester United Foundation on 1 May for a fundraising event, United Relief Live: The Big Red Day Out. Old Trafford will host a concert, a football match featuring legendary United players and celebrities, and a gala dinner.

The NSPCC has entered into a partnership with rent-to-own retailer BrightHouse, which hopes it will raise at least £100,000 a year. As well as corporate fundraising and collection boxes in stores, BrightHouse will also display posters and promotional material in its 190 shops to boost awareness of ChildLine.
