Your round-up of the latest fundraising campaigns

ActionAid has teamed up with music website Gigwise to launch the Bollocks to Poverty: Work It! campaign. Young people are being asked to put on events, such as fashion shows, gigs or house parties, to raise money to fight poverty. The charity expects about 150 events to be organised. Last year there was a Bollocks to Poverty tent at the Reading Festival (above).

Feed The Children is asking for donations to fund the cost of shipping goods to the developing world. The charity hopes to raise a minimum of £7,000 to send aid containers to countries in need. The most recent container was sent in April with supplies worth £325,000.

The National Autistic Society's chief executive, Mark Lever, hopes to have raised £2,500 from a 300-mile cycle trip through Europe. The Five Countries Bike Ride from 5 to 8 June took in England, France, Belgium, Holland and Germany.

St Mungo's, the London-based homelessness charity, is holding a five-mile bridge walk in the city on 5 July. Participants will start at Southwark Bridge and finish on Shaftesbury Avenue after crossing Westminster Bridge. Supporters are encouraged to raise £100.
