Allsorts Gloucestershire, based in Stroud, has received £66,000 from Global’s Make Some Noise to support its vital work to provide a wide range of fun, accessible activities to families with children who have additional needs and disabilities.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of listeners across Global’s radio brands – Capital, Heart, LBC, Classic FM, Smooth, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold, the money granted to Allsorts Gloucestershire will fund a new weekly Multi-Sports activity in Cheltenham, our football sessions in Stroud, and enable life changing benefits to families who have children with additional needs.
Jane Jones, Chief Exectutive of Allsorts said: “Thank you to Global Make Some Noise for our generous grant which will allow us to start our first Multi-Sports club in Cheltenham and continue our popular football activities in Stroud. The funding also supports the planning and organisation of all our sports activities. The additional £5,000 to support us further in the Cost of Living crisis is a complete bonus, so is very much appreciated in this difficult fundraising climate.”
The funding from Global’s Make Some Noise provides a vital lifeline in communities – from food banks to befriending projects for the elderly and isolated, cancer wellbeing programmes to domestic abuse refuges, from employment opportunities to physical therapy for people with disabilities.
This year, the charities that Global’s Make Some Noise supports will receive £5,000 in unrestricted funds to support with the growing impact of the cost-of-living crisis and to help keep their doors open. Many charities are facing growing waiting lists and unprecedented demand for their services, whilst facing increased energy bills and costs for frontline staff.
Suzanne Ryder Richardson, Director of Global Goodness at Global, said: “It’s been an incredibly tough couple of years for everyone and as the cost of living continues to increase, more people are turning to local groups for help, putting extra strain on their resources. With that in mind, I’m so pleased that Global’s Make Some Noise is able to help charities at the centre of the communities they serve and we will continue to raise money and awareness for their vital work.”
Every year, Global’s Make Some Noise grants are awarded to small charities across the country to help fund vital services.
