The Week in Charities

- Green protesters who climbed on to the roof of Edelman's offices last summer have been found not guilty of causing harassment, alarm and distress during the protest.

The activists from Oxford Climate Action were objecting to Edelman's relationship with client energy company E.ON. They were on trial after contesting an £80 Fixed Penalty Notice fine.

- Exposure has been appointed by The Prostate Cancer Charity to develop a campaign to raise awareness of the disease and increase support for the charity. The charity will team up with the Tour of Britain sporting event. The partnership will extend to a range of events for cyclists of all abilities.

- NfpSynergy, the not-for-profit sector think-tank, has surveyed 160 MPs and found that more than half said building a relationship with ten key MPs was the best way for charities to lobby the Government. Only three per cent advised using constrained resources to hire a public affairs agency.

- Wellbeing of Women has turned to InHouse PR to promote its Healthy Women Campaign. The brief includes profile-raising activities for the charity, whose patron is the Prime Minister's wife Sarah Brown. InHouse PR won the account after an eight-way pitch and will work for a minimum of six months.
