WATCH HOW WE SURPRISED SMALL CHARITIES WITH HUGE CHEQUES
Thanks to all you noisemakers, bakers and fear-facers, fundraisers and generous donators Global’s Make Some Noise has been able to give game-changing grants to 31 small charities across the UK.
It’s thanks to your amazing efforts and generous donations that Global’s Make Some Noise raised £4.2 million last October.
From Liverpool to London, and Glasgow through to Southampton, we’ll be helping almost 17,000 children and young people living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity over the next two years.
Over the past few weeks, we gave the charities the good news and let’s just say we had some special surprises up our sleeves…
We’re funding nearly 18,000 hours of support for children and young people living with disabilities, including over 5,500 hours of specialist support for children with autism.
The grants we’ve given will provide 6,500 hours of vital support for children, young people and their families experiencing cancer, more than 2,000 counselling and therapy sessions for children and young people affected by mental health, and over 6,000 hours of much-needed help for young carers, and so much more.
We’re also funding 57 roles across the charities. This includes two Clinical Psychologists for children with brain tumours and their families, two case workers specialising in domestic abuse, as well as a Bereavement Support Practitioner for children who have lost a close family member. Two roles will also support the running of two dedicated helplines, to provide vital information when families need it most.
We couldn’t do all of this without you!
To date, you’ve helped us to support 224 small charities, improving the lives of over 73,000 children and young people and thousands more families.
Now, check out our video to see what happened when we surprised 31 small charities up and down the country with far more money than they were expecting.
