The Week in Charities

Bright One Communications, a volunteer-run comms agency, has appointed four ambassadors as it celebrates its one-year anniversary.

Frank PR founder and MD Andrew Bloch, Edelman UK CEO Robert Phillips and Hotwire MD Kristin Syltevik have offered their help, along with Neville Hobson, co-host of the For Immediate Release business podcast. The four will champion the agency's objectives, refer suitable clients and offer mentoring support.

Shelter's House of Cards campaign has enlisted more than 50 artists, including Damien Hirst, David Bailey and Vivienne Westwood, to design playing cards for an exhibition and fundraising auction. The exhibition took place last week and the auction raised over £100,000 for the housing charity.

Amnesty International will be accompanied by Richard Hughes, drummer from the band Keane, on a visit to see a prisoner on death row in Georgia, USA. The visit will highlight what the NGO believes is a miscarriage of justice. Hughes, death penalty campaigner Kim Manning-Cooper and Scottish MP Alistair Carmichael, will visit Troy Davis on death row. Amnesty is encouraging people to sign a petition, which it will give to the Georgian authorities.
