£850,000 raised on Global's Make Some Noise Night!

Robbie Williams, Tom Walker and Freya Ridings all performed at Global’s Make Some Noise Night! 

Last night, Robbie Williams, Tom Walker and Freya Ridings joined Global’s all-star presenter line-up for our annual gala event – Global’s Make Some Noise Night, supported by DFS.

Celebrating its sixth year, the star-studded event raised £850,000 for Global’s Make Some Noise.

Global united all its radio brands for the event – Heart, Capital, Smooth, Classic FM, LBC, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold – to raise money for projects and small charities across the UK that support disadvantaged children, young people and their families.

The glittering night was hosted by many of Global’s big-name presenters, including Amanda Holden, Jamie Theakston, Myleene Klass, Kelly Brook, Marvin Humes, Nick Ferrari, Jenni Falconer and Johnny Vaughan.

Global presenters including Heart’s Mark Wright and Toby Anstis, 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 James O’Brien also gave their support on the night.

One of the world’s biggest music artists Robbie Williams, BRIT Award winner Tom Walker and the hugely talented singer-songwriter Freya Ridings, took to the stage at London’s Finsbury Square to perform live in front of almost 500 special guests – including chart-topping singer Becky Hill, television presenters Kirsty Gallacher and Lisa Snowdon and Made In Chelsea’s Georgia Toffolo.

The evening included the chance to bid on some incredible auction prizes – including a song personally written by the number one album-selling Tom Walker and the ultimate football fan’s dream prize of tickets to the three biggest games next year – the FA Cup Final and the Euro 2020 Final at Wembley, and the Champions League Final in Istanbul – plus a training session with Arsenal or Chelsea FC and lunch with two sporting legends, Harry and Jamie Redknapp.

Other prizes included a land-and-water safari in Botswana and South Africa, and a trip to see Robbie Williams play live in Las Vegas.

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.”

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us for the star-studded event and gave so generously – the money raised will help projects and small charities across the UK that support young people living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.

Help improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK
