£850,000 raised at Global’s Make Some Noise gala

A number of presenters from Global’s radio brands hosted the Make Some Noise annual charity gala at London’s Finsbury Square on Monday.

The event raised £850,000 for charity, as music artists including Robbie Williams, Tom Walker and Freya Ridings took to the stage to perform live in front of almost 500 special guests .

Global united all its radio brands for the event – Heart, Capital, Smooth, Classic FM, LBC, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold – to help children and young people living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.

Presenters including Myleene Klass from Classic FM and Smooth; Heart’s Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston, Kelly Brook, JK, Mark Wright, Jenni Falconer and Toby Anstis; Marvin Humes from Capital; Capital Breakfast’s Vick Hope and Sonny Jay; Tim Lihoreau and Alan Titchmarsh from Classic FM; Smooth Radio’s Tina Hobley and Angie Greaves; as well as LBC’s Nick Ferrari and James O’Brien, plus Johnny Vaughan from Radio X all gave their support on the night.

Stephen Miron, Group CEO of Global, said: “It has been another incredible night for Global’s Make Some Noise and to raise a staggering £850,000 in one evening is fantastic. Since we created Global’s Make Some Noise six years ago, more than £18 million has been raised to support 256 charities across the UK. I am so proud of what we have achieved.

“Through Global’s Make Some Noise, we will continue to shine the spotlight on projects and small charities that do phenomenal work but often struggle to be heard. A huge thank you to Robbie Williams, Tom Walker and Freya Ridings, our friends across the music and entertainment world, as well as the whole Global family.

“Through their support, we will continue to help transform the lives of thousands of children and young people across the UK for the better.”
