Global’s annual charity gala – Global’s Make Some Noise Night – has raised £870,424 in one evening.
Paloma Faith, Louisa Johnson and The Script joined Global’s presenter line-up to make money for the charity set up by Global to give a voice and a lifeline to small projects that struggle to be heard.
Now in its fourth year, Global has united all its radio brands – Heart, Capital, Smooth, Classic FM, LBC, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold – to raise money for disadvantaged youngsters across the UK living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.
Paloma Faith, Louisa Johnson and The Script performed live in front of more than 400 special guests at Supernova on London’s embankment.
Global’s presenters including Heart’s Jamie Theakston, Jenni Falconer and Toby Anstis; Myleene Klass from Classic FM and Smooth Radio; LBC’s Nick Ferrari and James O’Brien; Smooth’s Kate Garraway and Tina Hobley; Tim Westwood from Capital XTRA, plus Radio X’s Johnny Vaughan and Peter Crouch, all gave their support, along with VIP guests including Matt Terry, Charlotte Hawkins and Tokio Myers.
Later in the evening, the audience bid for a host of auction prizes, including the use of a private jet for a luxurious six-hour roundtrip flight, and a mini-break to LA to watch The Late Late Show and meet its host James Corden. Other prizes included a cooking class with Jamie Oliver; the chance to meet Liam Payne, plus tickets to some of the biggest entertainment and sporting events of 2018, such as the Wimbledon Men’s Final.
Stephen Miron, Group CEO of Global, said: “By uniting all our radio brands and our 25.2 million listeners, Global’s Make Some Noise is celebrating yet another record-breaking year. Since 2014, we have raised more than £9 million to help disadvantaged youngsters and shone the spotlight on smaller charities and projects that struggle to raise awareness.
“A massive thank you to everyone who has made Global’s Make Some Noise Night such a big success: from our star music artists Paloma Faith, Louisa Johnson and The Script; to our friends from the world of music and entertainment and, of course, the entire Global family. Thanks to their generosity, we will improve the lives of thousands of young people across the UK.”
All the money raised will go to Global’s Make Some Noise, which awards grants to charities and projects across the UK that help youngsters living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.
