Voluntary Sector: The Week in Charities

DDB UK ran a campaign for Remember a Charity Awareness Week with Hollywood stuntman Rocky Taylor to encourage people to remember a charity in their will.

Taylor broke a Guinness World Record on 13 September at London's O2 arena by driving through the largest sheet of breakaway glass ever smashed by a car.

CSV, the UK volunteering and training charity, held a two-day conference this week to share best practice on promoting volunteering by using broadcasting.

Refuge, the national domestic violence charity, has teamed up with Simply Knitting and The Knitter magazines to launch its Comfort Blanket campaign. Readers are being asked to knit small squares, which can be sewn together to create larger blankets that will be given to the women and children who use Refuge's services.

The Pennies Foundation has appointed Bell Pottinger director Simon Jones to its board of trustees. Jones, senior consultant at Chime Communications, was formerly MD of Harvard PR.

Survival International has enlisted fashion designer Savannah Miller to create an exclusive limited edition T-shirt inspired by the bushmen of the Kalahari in Botswana and their struggle to defend their lands from diamond mining.
