DJ’s from the stations took on their biggest challenges ever in aid of the sixth annual Make Some Noise appeal.
Heart Breakfast’s Jamie Theakston completed a gruelling 650-mile cycle from Edinburgh to London, taking in 8 cities in 8 days for his Bike Britain Challenge.
Throughout his journey, he battled aching limbs, fatigue and was overwhelmed with emotion as he was joined by Global’s Make Some Noise beneficiaries.
Smooth Radio’s Kate Garraway took on five roles in five smash hit shows in London’s West End in just one day, starring in MAMMA MIA!, Waitress, School of Rock The Musical, Magic Mike Live and BIG The Musical, while Capital Breakfast’s Roman Kemp managed to travel 1000 miles around the UK to present five breakfast shows in five days, but without money or the help of his phone in Roman’s No Money Road Trip.
Radio X’s Chris Moyles faced his huge fear of heights by hosting his show live from London’s Emirates Air Line Cable Car as his listeners kept donating to keep him in the air.
Classic FM’s Tim Lihoreau took on a Piano Pull challenge, successfully lugging a 400lb piano almost five miles across central London, from Classic FM’s studios in the heart of Leicester Square to the Royal Albert Hall.
Smooth and Classic FM presenter Myleene Klass, Heart’s Mark Wright and Smooth’s Kate Garraway helped out on the phones, accepting donations from listeners across the country. They joined in the fun by taking up the fancy dress theme wearing identical “Where’s Wally” outfits.
Since Global’s Make Some Noise launched in 2014, the national charity has raised more than £18.5 million and raised awareness for 256 charities and projects around the UK that struggle to be heard.
