Spencer Matthews recently announced a Guinness World Record attempt in aid of Global’s Make Some Noise to run 30 marathons in 30 days across the desert.

At the event, LBC Breakfast’s Nick Ferrari spoke about the difficulties small charities across the UK are facing.

He said: “The recent economic climate has forced many more families to look to small charities in their communities for help, and this, at a time when increasing costs are making it more expensive for the charities to deliver their services.

“They are struggling to meet the growing demand. A recent survey by Global’s Make Some Noise highlights the need to continue to support these community lifelines to ensure that nobody is turned away when they are most in need of help.”

Every year, Global’s Make Some Noise awards grants to small charities across the country to help fund the vital services they offer. Since its launch in 2014, Global’s Make Some Noise has raised over £35 million, supported over 480 incredible local community projects and made a life changing difference to over 200,000 people across the UK.  

Stephen Miron, Global’s Group Chief Executive, said: “Seeing how many projects we have supported through our charity, Global’s Make Some Noise, over the last 10 years has been simply incredible and a huge amount is down to the amazing efforts of so many Globallers.

“It was brilliant to be able to celebrate this impact at No. 11 Downing Street and I’m looking forward to another year of fundraising at Global, where we continue to be so grateful for the generous support of our listeners.”

Suzanne Ryder-Richardson, Director of Global Goodness at Global, said: “We’re immensely proud of the life changing difference Global’s Make Some Noise has made to over 200,000 people in the last 10 years. This is all down to the generous and continued support of our incredible partners, fundraisers, volunteers, listeners, and of course, all the amazing Globallers.

“Right now, millions of people across the UK are facing some of their toughest moments, support really has never been more crucial. We will continue to work tirelessly to raise funds to ensure that these local projects, delivering a vital lifeline of support in the heart of their communities, can continue their amazing work.”
