Voluntary Sector: The Week in Charities

Cancer Research UK has retained Frank PR as its agency after a fiercely fought contest. The agency triumphed over Mischief and Borkowski in a three-way pitch last week.

Centrepoint has brought in The Red Consultancy to provide pro bono support to the homelessness charity. As well as PR advice, it will encourage its staff to volunteer. Red's CEO Mike Morgan said: 'There's a job to be done in increasing the charity's profile.' The charity stopped working with Redhead PR this year.

Oxfam is launching a campaign this week to make the public aware of the impact of rising food prices on the charity and the developing world. The launch coincides with the UN's World Food Day on 16 October.

Hudson PR is handling media for this year's The Big Sing. The event will attempt to break the world record for the most amount of people singing at the same time. It is organised by Young Voices, Youth Music, CLIC Sargent and Marie Curie Cancer Care. Freshwater PR worked on the account last year.

Diabetes UK has launched a campaign called 'Silent Assassin' to highlight the seriousness of diabetes. The campaign will push the message that diabetes kills more people than breast and prostate cancer put together.
