Voluntary Sector: The Week in Charities

The Art Fund, the National Trust and National Heritage Memorial Fund have gathered the funds to keep Pieter Brueghel the Younger's painting The Procession to Calvary on public display, after an intensive three-month fundraising campaign that raised £2.72m.

The Procession to Calvary can now be kept on public display at Nostell Priory in West Yorkshire.

Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People has appointed the Midlands office of Grayling to help promote the charity. Grayling Midlands will publicise all events and fundraising initiatives for the Loughborough-based charity, which provides care and support for life-limited children and their families.

The Institute of Fundraising has launched the first iPhone app to support fundraisers and donors in calculating the benefits of tax-effective giving. The app showcases the tax benefits to donors of giving through various methods and calculates any relief that may be available.

Macmillan Cancer Support has launched a new website, called The Biggest Thank You. The site gives people affected by cancer a place to come together and thank those who are special to them and who helped during their cancer experience.
