We are delighted to be supporting Global’s Make Some Noise for the fourth year, Giles Tanner from Global “Its fantastic to be involved in Miss Tyne & Wear GB and look forward to raising as much as we can for youngers and their families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity”.

Global’s Make Some Noise is the official in-house charity of Global, the media and entertainment group. We support small but brilliant charities helping disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

These charities struggle to get heard, so we unite some of the best- loved radio stations in the UK – Heart, Capital, Capital XTRA, Classic FM, Smooth, LBC, Radio X and Gold – to give them a voice and raise money to support their incredible work.

These projects are a vital lifeline for thousands of youngsters and their families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity. They provide life-changing support such as speech therapy for children recovering from brain tumours, confidence-building workshops for teenagers with cancer and help and guidance to bereaved children who have lost someone special. Without projects like these, families wouldn’t be able to access this life-changing support locally, if at all.

I had the pleasure of working alongside Simon Roberston and his team for Miss North East GB since 2015. Simon’s wealth of experience ensured our partnership ran not only smoothly but also with great benefit to our nominated charity, Global’s Make Some Noise. I am excited and looking forward to the opportunity to work alongside him again in 2018 for Miss Tyne and Wear GB”.
