Thanks to your amazing support over the past 12 months, Global’s Make Some Noise has been able to award a staggering £1,423,385 in grants to small but brilliant projects across the UK.
We’re proud to support some very special charities up and down the country, which do amazing work to help youngsters and their families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity. Our grants will fund vital services at these projects including 6,215 hours of specialist nursing care for youngsters with serious or terminal illnesses, 5,515 hours of neuro-rehabilitation therapy for children with brain tumours and 4,108 hours of support for young carers.
Funding from Global’s Make Some Noise will also cover the cost of 3,500 educational storybooks, 480 drop-in counselling sessions, 274 days of music therapy, 239 kits of essential equipment for premature babies, 124 child bereavement groups, 19 specialist roles, musical instruments and technology, kit for sensory play rooms, events across London and even a Global’s Make Some Noise branded van!
Some lucky projects were visited by their local radio station’s presenters, to receive a cheque for their grant from Global’s Make Some Noise.
Sarah James, Head of Fundraising at James Hopkins Trust, one of the charities we’re proud to support, told us:
“The impact this donation will have on us is enormous and makes a tangible difference to the families we support. James Hopkins Trust are truly overwhelmed at everyone’s support, kindness and generosity. To help ensure our families get the much needed support they need is just wonderful; we would like to say a huge heartfelt thank you to you all in helping us achieve our dream to provide free respite to young children in Gloucestershire who are life limited, life threatened or severely disabled.”
Over the coming weeks, the 38 projects supported by Global’s Make Some Noise will also be attending special masterclasses at Global HQ. Here, they’ll learn skills in areas such as social media and marketing, to enable them to make more noise for themselves in the future.
