Robbie Williams, Tom Walker And Freya Ridings Perform At Annual Charity Gala Hosted By Global, The Media & Entertainment Group
Last night (Monday), Robbie Williams, Tom Walker and Freya Ridings joined Global’s all-star presenter line-up for the media and entertainment group’s annual charity gala – Global’s Make Some Noise Night.
Celebrating its sixth year, the star-studded event raised £850,000 for the national charity Global’s Make Some Noise – set up by Global to support small charities across the UK that help disadvantaged children, young people and their families. The glittering night was hosted by many of Global’s big-name presenters, including Amanda Holden, Jamie Theakston, Myleene Klass, Kelly Brook, Marvin Humes, Nick Ferrari, Jenni Falconer and Johnny Vaughan.
One of the world’s biggest music artists Robbie Williams, whose new album The Christmas Present has just been released; BRIT Award winner Tom Walker and the hugely talented singer-songwriter Freya Ridings, took to the stage at London’s Finsbury Square to perform live in front of almost 500 special guests.
Global united all its radio brands for the event – Heart, Capital, Smooth, Classic FM, LBC, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold – to help children and young people living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.
Global presenters including Myleene Klass from Classic FM and Smooth; Heart’s Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston, Kelly Brook, JK, Mark Wright, Jenni Falconer and Toby Anstis; Marvin Humes from Capital; Capital Breakfast’s Vick Hope and Sonny Jay; Tim Lihoreau and Alan Titchmarsh from Classic FM; Smooth Radio’s Tina Hobley and Angie Greaves; as well as LBC’s Nick Ferrari and James O’Brien, plus Johnny Vaughan from Radio X all gave their support on the night.
“It has been another incredible night for Global’s Make Some Noise and to raise a staggering £850,000 in one evening is fantastic. Since we created Global’s Make Some Noise six years ago, more than £18 million has been raised to support 256 charities across the UK. I am so proud of what we have achieved.
Through Global’s Make Some Noise, we will continue to shine the spotlight on projects and small charities that do phenomenal work but often struggle to be heard.
A huge thank you to Robbie Williams, Tom Walker and Freya Ridings, our friends across the music and entertainment world, as well as the whole Global family. Through their support, we will continue to help transform the lives of thousands of children and young people across the UK for the better.”
Stephen Miron, Group CEO of Global
