Children's charity needs volunteers

Volunteers are needed for a house-to-house collection scheme which supports the work of a children's charity in Essex. Action for Children's house-to-house collection takes place in Billericay, each September.

The annual event has in some years raised more than £8,000 and the charity believes it is an ideal opportunity for volunteers aged 18 and over to gain fundraising experience and to work as part of a friendly and supportive team.

Money raised from the collection will go to Action For Children services, directly benefiting vulnerable and neglected children through, for example, short breaks centres, family development centres and services that provide support for victims of sexual abuse.

Twins donate year's pocket money to charity

Young children and their pocket money are not easily parted - unless it's for sweets or toys. But seven-year-old twin girls from Cambridgeshire have saved their pennies for a whole year and donated it all to charity.

Lauren and Olivia Bocking have given over £100 to MAGPAS, the emergency response charity - which helped to save their dad David when he had a motorbike accident in his 20s.
