We’re thrilled to announce that through our 2014 appeal, Global’s Make Some Noise is already improving the lives of 200,000 disadvantaged children and young people from across the UK.
A staggering £812,857 has been awarded in grants to over 100 children and young people’s charities from all across the UK, which support youngsters who may have been affected by illness, disability, bereavement or lack of opportunity. Click here to see the full list of projects we have supported.
Amongst these projects is Teens Unite Fighting Cancer, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of young people with cancer and other life limited illnesses.
Debbie Pezzani, CEO and Co-Founder of Teens Unite Fighting Cancer said: “We feel extremely fortunate to be a beneficiary of Global’s Make Some Noise. The funding we have been awarded will enable us to run three motivational and confidence building workshops for 30 young people fighting cancer. These workshops help to provide these teenagers and young adults with a fuller life whilst battling their illness,in a similar situation and gain strength from realising they are not alone in their journey.”
Rachel, one of the teens from Teens Unite Fighting Cancer (pictured third from the left) said: “All of these opportunities are an absolute blessing to have some ‘normality’, and give me something to look forward to and aim for when I’m struggling or look back on and smile when times are tough. The Teens Unite family and the days I have with these amazing people have given me memories I will always treasure.”
