Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

The Meningitis Trust will launch a direct mail campaign this month to reach new audiences and gain new supporters. The first strand of the campaign features a young girl who contracted meningitis at the age of two. It shows how the after-effects last a lifetime and highlights the need to support the services provided by the trust.

Steve Harley, Glenn Hughes and The Pretty Things are among the musicians appearing on a live CD recorded to raise funds for ChildLine. The CD, which went on sale minutes after the annual ChildLine Rocks fundraising concert finished last week, is expected to raise more than £10,000.

Essex Air Ambulance is asking supporters to Go Yellow for one day in September by wearing something yellow and donating £1 to the helicopter service. The campaign raised more than £16,000 in 2008.

Children's hospice Chase is urging employees in businesses in south-west London, Surrey and Sussex to Bring £1 to Work this month for the hospice. The event takes place on 26 June and the charity hopes to raise £10,000 and improve awareness of its services.
