The Week in Charities - 14 August

Ovarian Cancer Action is launching a campaign this month to communicate the common symptoms of ovarian cancer to women. Actress Emilia Fox and the Royal College of GPs have added their support to the campaign. The charity aims to increase the current eight per cent of women who can identify the symptoms.

Make Your Mark charity has appointed Open Communications to handle comms for the Yorkshire and Humber region. The account runs until March 2010. The agency worked with the charity last year on Global Entrepreneurship Week.

Willis Group Holdings, a global insurance broker, has selected The Adolescent and Children's Trust (TACT) as its first charity of the year. Willis will co-ordinate fundraising activities, take part in events and arrange fundraising projects for the charity. TACT provides fostering and adoption services in the UK.

The Fire Fighters Charity and the Communities and Local Government department are joining together to sign up fire fighters to communicate fire safety messages to primary school children on National Schools Fire Safety Day on 14 October. The campaign will focus on 'planning a safe escape'.
