Momentum children’s charity is thrilled to have been selected as one of this year’s beneficiaries to receive funding and support through Global’s Make Some Noise.
The Kingston-based charity is just one of 35 UK charities to have been chosen to benefit from the appeal which aims to make a lot of noise about the children and young people it supports by helping to raise funds and awareness via London radio stations and websites.
Momentum families and staff are excited to have been invited to talk about the charity to radio presenters from popular stations including LBC and Classic FM during September, ahead of the big Global Make Some Noise fundraising day on Friday October 7th 2016. Tune in and listen out for us!
In addition to supporting up to 150 families of sick children across SW London and Surrey at any one time through its Family Support Programme, Momentum helps to enhance the healing environment in hospitals by undertaking refurbishment projects on Paediatric Units.
All funds raised for Momentum through Global’s appeal will go towards the charity’s programme of respite holidays available to its families at its two New Forest holiday homes.
Momentum’s Co-founder Bianca Effemey said: “We are thrilled that Global’s Make Some Noise has chosen Momentum as one of their charities to support this year. With their help we hope to raise more awareness and funds to support sick children across SW London and Surrey.”
Emma Bradley, director of Global’s Make Some Noise, said: “More than 24 million people tune in to Global’s radio brands every week with millions more engaging with us through out digital platforms. This puts us in an fantastic position to help charities and projects that would otherwise struggle to raise awareness. We’re so pleased that we’re able to support Momentum children’s charity this year.”
Global’s Make Some Noise was created by Global, the media & entertainment group. The charity unites all of Global’s brands, including Heart, Capital, Capital XTRA, Radio X, Classic FM, LBC, Smooth and Gold, to give a voice to small charities and projects across the UK which struggle to raise awareness.
