Global’s Make Some Noise is the official charity of the Media & Entertainment group Global, home to some of the UK’s biggest radio brands including Heart, Capital, Classic FM, Smooth, LBC, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold.

Over the past year, the Global’s Make Some Noise team having been raising money and awareness for sickle cell and the other charities.

  • On the radio – the Sickle Cell Society were delighted to be invited to speak about sickle cell on the radio. A young girl named Miai was able to share her story about living with sickle cell on Capital FM (see below for video)
  • Training – members of the Sickle Cell Society staff were able to receive training from Global’s experts
  • Fundraising – the main goal of Global’s Make Some Noise has been raising money through radio fundraisers to support a whole range of projects
