Once again, you've done us proud... THANK YOU everyone who has donated to Make Some Noise this year!
Global’s radio brands Heart, Capital, Capital XTRA, Classic FM, Smooth, LBC, Radio X and Gold united for the day to raise money for small charities that help disadvantaged children, young people and their families across the UK living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.
On Radio X, we gave away some amazing prizes, including guitars signed by Liam Fray of Courteeners, Pete Doherty of The Libertines, Noel Gallagher and Arctic Monkeys... plus trips to New York, Florida, Mexico and more!
Chris Moyles set his team challenges and Pippa Taylor faced her fears by meeting Maureen the tarantula.
Meanwhile, Dominic Byrne had an even tougher challenge:
Throughout Friday, 5 October, Global’s all-star presenter line-up including Heart’s Emma Bunton, Jamie Theakston, Rochelle Humes, Jenni Falconer and special guest host Kimberley Walsh, Capital’s Marvin Humes, LBC’s Nick Ferrari, James O’Brien and Eddie Mair, Smooth and Classic FM presenter Myleene Klass, Classic FM’s John Suchet, Radio X’s Chris Moyles and Johnny Vaughan and Capital XTRA’s Tim Westwood all made some noise for disadvantaged children and young people by giving small charities a platform to tell their story on air to Global’s 25 million listeners.
Heart London’s Breakfast presenter, Jamie Theakston, completed his seven marathons in seven days challenge, “Jamie’s Long Walk to London”. Setting off from Cardiff last Friday, Jamie trekked 182.7 miles across the country. After a gruelling and emotional week, he arrived at Heart’s Leicester Square studios on Friday morning, accompanied by Olly Murs and some young people supported by charities that Global’s Make Some Noise helps.
Global’s Make Some Noise Day followed months of fundraising which has seen Global presenters take on their most gruelling challenges yet. Classic FM’s Aled Jones faced his fear of flying with white-knuckle wing walk challenge, living out his hit ‘Walking in the Air’ at more than 6,500ft and speeds of 130mph. Heart West Midlands’ Ed James scaled Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scafell Pike this week.
Once again, a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who got involved!
