Charity gala for Global’s Make Some Noise raises over £1 million
Last night, Rita Ora, Myleene Klass and Busted joined others at the annual charity gala for Global’s Make Some Noise.
The star-studded event, which is supported by Barclaycard, raised £1,120,617 for Global’s official charity, which was created to help fund small charities and projects across the UK.
This year marks the 10th annual appeal as all of Global’s radio brands Heart, Capital, Smooth Radio, Classic FM, LBC, Radio X and Gold, plus its outdoor estate came together to raise funds for those in need.
Internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Rita Ora, Classic FM and Smooth Radio presenter and musician Myleene Klass, and multi-BRIT award-winning band Busted took to the stage at The Londoner hotel in Leicester Square to perform in front of 400 special guests.
Presenters including Heart’s Jamie Theakston, Amanda Holden, Ashley Roberts and Pandora Christie; Capital’s Roman Kemp, Sian Welby and Chris Stark; Smooth Radio’s Kirsty Gallacher, LBC’s James O’Brien, Johnny Vaughan from Radio X, and The News Agents’ Emily Maitlis, Jon Sopel and Lewis Goodall all gave their support on the night.
Stephen Miron, Group CEO of Global, said: “To raise more than £1.1 million for Global’s Make Some Noise is a fantastic achievement and I am incredibly proud of what we have accomplished, both last night, and in the 10 annual Appeals since Global’s Make Some Noise was created.
“During that time, we have raised more than £35 million, supported 440 projects and charities across the UK, and helped change the lives of more than 175,000 people.
“This is only possible with the support and generosity of superstar music artists, along with our good friends from the world of music and entertainment, the entire Global family and, most of all, our millions of listeners.
“We know that thousands of people across the UK are facing hugely challenging circumstances, so through the small charities and projects that we support and champion, we are changing lives for the better.”
