The Week in Charities

Bowel Cancer UK has launched its first consumer-facing campaign with a three-year awareness and fundraising drive called 'Check It'. It will encourage its community supporters to use the campaign as a fundraising tool and will also be targeting healthcare professionals.

Christian Aid has launched in Spain under the name InspirAction. It aims to persuade Spanish citizens to put pressure on their government to make the plight of the world's poorest countries central to the talks at December's UN summit on Climate Change. Christian Aid's MD Matthew Reed said: 'There is a strong sense of social solidarity among the Spanish people that we feel can be harnessed to increase international support for our vital campaigning. Spain is an emerging fundraising market with much potential.'

Centrepoint, the young people's homelessness charity, has appointed The Good Agency to develop a new approach to its sponsorship activity. The agency will set up an interactive site to create greater engagement with sponsors. The agency will also recruit new sponsors throughout the year.
