Voluntary Sector: The Week in Charities

- Malaria No More UK has teamed up with the Cartoon Network to launch its Beat the Mozzy campaign. Animations featuring Zii, the malicious mosquito, will be used to increase UK public awareness about the scale of malaria.

- The MusicianS' Union will put forward a motion at the TUC annual conference in London next month (12-14 September), which will raise the issue of how musicians are paid for performing at fundraising events. The union says musicians are being emotionally blackmailed into playing charity events for free and should not be expected to perform without being paid.

- The Prince's Trust has announced a partnership with Premier League football club Blackburn Rovers. The charity's name will be printed on the team's shirts and the club will also embark on fundraising activities throughout the new season, as part of its charity of the year partnership.

- Media Trust is searching for ten London-based aspiring broadcast journalists, aged 18-25, to produce Community Channel's fortnightly television magazine show, London 360. The closing date for applications is Monday 29 August. The ten will form the second wave to join London 360 on a five-month intense reporter volunteer-placement.
