What's New: Unicef, the Children's Trust, Operation Smile and Help the Hospices

Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

Pampers has launched a campaign to raise funds for Unicef to provide 100 million tetanus vaccinations. The company will donate enough money for one tetanus vaccine to the charity for every product it sells featuring the Unicef logo between October and December.

The Children's Trust hopes 40,000 children will wear their pyjamas to nursery or school between 12 and 16 October in support of Humphrey's Pyjama Week. Children can take part for a donation of £2 each.

Sixty teams of fundraisers will travel from Peru to Paraguay in three-wheeled 'mototaxis' to raise funds for Operation Smile UK and the Rainforest Foundation. The teams, from 14 countries, hope to complete the journey in two weeks, starting on 24 October. Each team must raise at least £1,000.

Clydesdale Bank has raised £30,000 for Help the Hospices and a further £150,000 for other charities through an auction of collectable banknotes. The bank's employees will choose up to 100 charities to receive a share of the £150,000.
