Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

The Scottish Spina Bifida Association is appealing for 400 female supporters to attend its annual Ladies Who Give An F* lunch at the Thistle Hotel, Glasgow, on 31 May.

The event is part of the charity's Gordon Ramsay appeal. Guests will have the chance to bid for a meal for two in Ramsay's Maze Restaurant and buy recipe books signed by the chef. TV presenter and interior designer John Amabile, who presents ITV's 60-Minute Makeover and is the charity's newest ambassador, will host the lunch. Other speakers will include Scottish actor Joyce Falconer. Tickets are £37 each and the charity hopes to raise more than £16,000.

The Retail Trust is hoping to break two Guinness World Records - the most people folding T-shirts at the same time and the most T-shirts worn by one person at one time - at the Westfield Shopping Centre in London during Retail Trust Week, which runs between 11 and 18 May. Retailers including House of Fraser and Harrods are organising fundraising events such as abseiling and sporting unusual hairstyles, with the aim of beating last year's total of £100,000.

The HIV Support Centre is holding a sponsored zipline event across the River Lagan, Belfast, on 26 September. It is hoping to recruit 100 volunteers to take part and is offering up to 40 places to charities in Northern Ireland.

Inspire is encouraging people to raise funds by looking after an egg for a day during Learning Disability Week, which runs between 22 and 28 June. It aims to raise awareness of the fragility of people with learning difficulties.
