Global’s Make Some Noise night raises more than £1.1 million for charity

Global’s Make Some Noise Night raised £1,120,617 with the help of Rita Ora, Myleene Klass and Busted last night in London.

As the charity celebrates its 10th annual Appeal, Global brought together all its radio brands – Heart, Capital, Smooth Radio, Classic FM, LBC, Radio X and Gold – and its outdoor estate, to help those living through the toughest of circumstances.

The night was hosted by many of Global’s presenters, including Amanda Holden, Jamie Theakston, Roman Kemp, Sian Welby, Chris Stark and James O’Brien.

Singer-songwriter Rita Ora, Classic FM and Smooth Radio presenter and musician Myleene Klass, and Busted took to the stage at The Londoner hotel in Leicester Square to perform in front of 400 special guests.

Global’s 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.

Once again, Barclaycard very generously supported the event. All the money raised from the evening goes to Global’s Make Some Noise.

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.”
