Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

Mind is asking people to donate men's clothes and gadgets as part of its latest fundraising drive.

The mental health charity wants the items that are donated to its shops to raise awareness of men's mental health as part of its Get It Off Their Chest campaign. Fashion designer Tom Empson, who has dressed windows for fashion labels such as Diesel and Full Circle, dressed the charity's shop in Islington, north London, before the launch of Mind Week on 9 May. Empson has produced tips on window dressing that have been sent to all Mind stores. He has also mocked up an example of how a window could look.

Prostate UK has launched its latest Pants in the Park event, which encourages participants to take part in 5km runs with their pants outside their clothes. Events will be run on every Sunday in June and the charity hopes to raise £60,000 - twice as much as last year.

ME Research UK and the ME Association have launched their joint Just Four Quid appeal, which aims to raise £1m for research into ME. Starting this week, the charities will provide new money-saving tips every seven days and hope that people will give the money they save to the appeal.

World Jewish Relief is hoping its Big Bagel appeal will raise more than £30,000 from more than 175 events across the UK this weekend, from 15 to 17 May. The charity says the event combines favourite Jewish pastimes - food, talking and talking about food - to raise money for its global humanitarian aid programmes.
