A night of Take That, Kaiser Chiefs, Katherine Jenkins and Ella Henderson helped Global raise half a million pounds at the inaugural Global’s Make Some Noise Night.
It took place on Thursday at Supernova in London, and the £500,000 raised will help disadvantaged children and young people across the UK, adding to the £1.1 million that was raised on Global’s Make Some Noise day in October.
Many of Global’s presenters lent their support on the night including Capital’s Dave Berry and Lisa Snowdon, Heart London’s Jamie Theakston and Emma Bunton, Nick Ferrarri from LBC, Smooth Radio’s Kate Garraway, Jenni Falconer from Heart, Myleene Klass from Classic FM and Smooth Radio, Tim Westwood from Capital XTRA and Marvin Humes from Capital and The Vodafone Big Top 40.
Auction items were snapped up including a Range Rover, tickets to the BAFTA Awards, a luxury holiday in Barbados, VIP access to Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball, and tickets to some of the biggest sporting events including the 2015 Wimbledon Men’s Final and the Rugby World Cup.
One of the beneficiaries of Global’s Make Some Noise Night will be Child Bereavement UK, who were represented by Victoria Milligan. Victoria appeared along with her family, and spoke movingly and passionately about how incredible the charity has been in helping her family through their tragedy.
Victoria Milligan said: “When we lost my husband and daughter, my whole family were devastated and I didn’t think there was any way through the grief. Child Bereavement UK helped us begin to come to terms with our loss and continue to be of enormous support to my children as we begin to rebuild our lives. The money raised at Global’s Make Some Noise Night will help Child Bereavement UK support many more families who need their help, so on their behalf I’d like to thank you for your generosity.”
Stephen Miron, Group CEO of Global, said: “This has been a wonderful evening and I would like to thank all our friends who have given so generously tonight as well as the Global team that made it all possible. The money raised will, quite simply, change young lives across the UK. Our sincere and huge thanks go to Take That who were just sensational in their first performance as a three-piece. I would also like to thank the Kaiser Chiefs, Katherine Jenkins and Ella Henderson who were all incredible and helped to make our first Global’s Make Some Noise Night a huge success.”
