On Tuesday April 14th, Classic FM put on another outstanding concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Global’s Make Some Noise was lucky enough to be the beneficiary for the evening, raising an amazing £2,787 through the generosity of the audience.
The evening featured stellar performances by violinist Nemanja Radulovic, french pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, and The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines, all of whom contributed to the memorable evening with their varying talents.
Representatives from one of the projects we support, Teens Unite Fighting Cancer, were invited along to enjoy the evening of classical music. The project is dedicated to improving the lives of young people with cancer and other life limiting illnesses, and are one of the charities that were awarded a Make Some Noise grant in our recent allocations.
One of the teens who has benefitted from their support, Matt (pictured above, right), was given the opportunity to go on stage to talk about his experiences with Classic FM’s Margherita Taylor (pictured above, centre). Matt spoke of how he became involved with Teens Unite, and how the charity has helped to rebuild his confidence as well as giving him the chance to meet other teens in similar situations. It was an incredibly moving moment and really stuck a chord with the audience, allowing them to see first hand what a difference the money raised by Global’s Make Some Noise makes. You can hear Matt’s on-stage moment here…
We would also like to give a special thanks to long term supporter and friend of the charity, John Oldham (pictured below, left), who recently presented Global’s Make Some Noise with another generous donation of £2,500 from The Oldham Foundation. The cheque was presented at Classic FM Live, where John met Matt and the other Teens from Teens Unite, while presenting the cheque to Director of Global Goodness, Emma Bradley (pictured below, right). We’re so thankful to The Oldham Foundation for their continuing support.
