Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

Sue Ryder Care has launched its fifth annual art competition.

The competition is open to artists of all abilities and has been set up to raise money for people with serious illnesses and conditions. Artists are invited to pay £12.50 and submit work under the theme 'liberation'. About 200 pieces will be exhibited in December at London's Mall Galleries. The charity will receive 35 per cent of the sale of each piece. Last year's entries included this self-portrait by Arina Gordienko.

The Science Museum is launching a centenary appeal to increase donations from the public. The campaign will run for 12 months from 26 June and the museum hopes to raise £1m.

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity is calling on supporters to send in old mobile phones and inkjet cartridges for its recycling appeal. The charity hopes to raise £10,000 to pay for new hospital equipment.
