Global’s Make Some Noise, the official charity of the Media & Entertainment group Global, has distributed grants to 60 small charities and projects across the UK following its determined fundraising efforts in 2021.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of listeners across Global’s radio brands – Capital, Heart, LBC, Classic FM, Smooth, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold, free@last located in Nechell’s has received £40,000 from Global’s Make Some Noise to support its vital work to improve the lives of children and young people in Nechells.
The money granted to free@last will fund the ‘Passion for Business’ project which uses music to unearth entrepreneurial skills and enable life-changing benefits to families and individuals in the local community. It will also cover the cost of youth workers, a sessional DJ, a vocal coach and a music/producer sound engineer.
free@last said: “The funds are going to allow us to make it into a multi year programme which means we can continue to keep the kids engaged and widen the prospects they are presented with.”
Now in its eighth year of service, Global’s Make Some Noise has supported over 400 local charities whose remarkable work has helped a total of 150,000 people across the UK. The money raised has paid for food banks, befriending projects for the elderly and isolated, cancer wellbeing programmes, domestic abuse refuges, employment training and physical therapy for people with disabilities.
Last year’s donations will fund the following support and essential services for over 22,000 people in the next 12 months:
Emma Bradley, Director of Global Goodness at Global said: “It’s been an incredibly tough couple of years for everyone. With the cost of living continuing to increase many more people will turn to local groups for help, putting extra strain on their resources. So we’re pleased to be able to help small charities at the centre of communities and will continue to raise money and awareness for their vital work.”
