Global’s Make Some Noise, the official charity of Global, the Media & Entertainment group, has raised more than £2.7 million for small and local charities delivering vital life support programmes that help disadvantaged people across the UK.
Today, on its annual Make Some Noise Day, Global’s radio brands Heart, Capital, Classic FM, Smooth, LBC, Radio X, Capital Dance, Capital XTRA and Gold, all came together to raise much-needed funds for 100 charities in local communities across the UK who work tirelessly to provide support for people living with mental and physical health issues, debt, homelessness, and hunger.
In aid of the charity’s ninth appeal, Heart Breakfast’s Amanda Holden took on the monumental ‘Three Peaks Challenge’ and successfully climbed the highest mountains in Wales, England and Scotland (Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis) within 24 hours.
Capital Breakfast presenters Roman Kemp, Sonny Jay and Siân Welby sold their very own, uniquely designed products on eBay and they took on Global’s ‘Dress Loud’ theme and dressed up as emojis.
Elsewhere, Chris Moyles and his Radio X breakfast team made themselves available for a brunch at The Dilly for one lucky listener. They’re also giving away a guitar signed by the Manic Street Preachers’ James Dean Bradfield and a 20th anniversary edition of Oasis album ‘Be Here Now’ signed by Liam Gallagher.
Classic FM raised money via its ‘Big Birthday Bake’ and a limited edition 30th birthday mug.
Other Global presenters joined in the fun to support the company’s fundraising efforts and they too donned fancy dress. Smooth’s Kate Garraway channelled the iconic Freddy Mercury, Heart’s Mark Wright, Ashley Roberts and Pandora Christie were Grease’s Danny, Sandy and Frenchy, and Capital XTRA’s Shayna Marie Birch-Campbell and Robert Bruce transformed into Stormzy and Melissa’s Wardrobe – the celebrity stylist and subject of Stormzy‘s new single ‘Mel Made Me Do It‘. Smooth’s Angie Greaves looked sensational as Diana Ross, as did Kelly Brook as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, accompanied by her dog Teddy, aka Dorothy’s dog Toto, and her Heart co-host JK as Scarecrow.
This year’s headline sponsor for all Global’s Make Some Noise activity was Hotpoint. And also supporting the 2022 appeal were eBay for Charity, Omaze, Cotswold Outdoor, TalkTalk, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Wright’s Baking.
“I’m incredibly proud that our listeners, presenters and Globallers have all come together again to support small charities working so hard in local communities to help those who need it most.
Their efforts have resulted in an astounding £2.7m raised that we know will make a big difference to people dealing with some incredibly challenging situations.
A massive thank you to everyone who’s been involved in our ninth Make Some Noise appeal." - STEPHEN MIRON, GROUP CEO OF GLOBAL
“Millions of people rely on small charities for food, care, counselling, companionship, and survival. These people might live on your street, in your community, or further away. But it’s good to know there’s support available from amazing small charities right across the UK.
Times have been extremely tough for these charities over the last few years, so now, more than ever, it’s been fantastic to be able to give them a voice and share just some of the inspiring work they’re doing.
Listeners have been so generous and have showed support for Global’s Make Some Noise in brilliant ways. From baking cakes, to scaling mountains, raising £2.7m in such uncertain times is an incredible achievement. A big thank you from me too.” - STUART CAMPBELL, DIRECTOR OF FUNDRAISING & MARKETING, GLOBAL’S MAKE SOME NOISE
