The Week in Charities - 4 September

Christian Aid has launched its Mass Visual Trespass campaign.

The charity has asked the UK public to upload photographs or a short video of themselves holding a climate message for Gordon Brown on its website. These images will be projected onto landmark buildings across the country in the run up to the UN Climate Change summit in December.

Oxfam used Beatwax to manage a stunt that aimed to raise awareness of climate change. The NGO put a family watching TV in the shark tank at the London Aquarium last week. The stunt was intended to show what could happen if the Government did not act on climate change to stop rising sea levels.

The Energy Saving Trust has reappointed PHA Media after a competitive pitch for a campaign to raise awareness about the relationship between wasting water and wasting energy. The campaign will target London, Cardiff and Edinburgh.

CLIC Sargent comms chief and interim CEO Sarah Talbot-Williams has left to run Bristol NHS Foundation Trust's charity Above and Beyond. The charity has recruited Dominic O'Reilly as interim director of comms and campaigning. He joins from Afghanaid.
