Thank You For Supporting Global's Make Some Noise!
Global's Make Some Noise is Heart's charity that gives a voice to small but brilliant projects across the UK including Pathways 4 All, which provides safe and accessible play facilities for children and young people with disabilities and additional needs right here in the North East.
Pathways 4 All asked for a grant of £21,434 to support the running of the 'Make Some Noise Play scheme' throughout school holidays for one year, which would provide a lifeline to over 800 children and young people with disabilities or complex needs - but, thanks to the enormous generosity of listeners, Global’s Make Some Noise was able to handover a cheque for nearly 3 times that amount - £60,200! Which will make sure the play scheme runs for not one, but two years, plus support the role of a project manager to run it!
In case you can't remember what we've been up to - Justin from Heart Breakfast faced his fears and held a snake...
Listeners trekked through the Lakes to Survive the Wild, and thousands were raised with the help our partners, who we have to say an extra special thanks to:
Boulevard raised thousands throughout their Christmas shows with an amazing prize draw!
The beautiful Miss North East GB girls made lots of noise with their fabulous fashion shows!
The super scary Scream Factory donated money for every ticket sold on their terrifying nights!
Something that made us all very jealous was when Kenny Atkinson and his House of Tides team left the kitchen to cook Michelin star food for a very lucky listener!
Plus a huge thank you to everyone who donated Prizes
