What a day!

Thanks to the fabulous generosity of listeners and supporters, the fifth Make Some Noise appeal has raised a staggering £4,198,678. Right across the country, schools and workplaces dressed loud and held events from bake offs to bingo, from discos to dog shows.

Global’s radio brands Gold, Heart, Capital, Capital XTRA, Classic FM, LBC, Radio X and Smooth united for the day to raise money for small charities that help disadvantaged children, young people and their families across the UK living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.

Throughout the day, Global’s all-star presenter line-up including Gold's Tony Dibbin, all made some noise for disadvantaged children and young people by giving small charities a platform to tell their story on air to Global’s 25 million listeners.

On Gold, David Essex, TV favourite Brian Conley and Bay City Rollers legend Les McKeown made appearances on-air throughout the day, and we also gave you the chance win tickets to West End musical 9 to 5 and to book your place on a fantastic Swinging 60s bus tour!

Tony Dibbin was also challenged by David Essex to form his own band, and so he was joined by Les and Brian for a special Facebook Live Aid performance of Beatles and Bay City Rollers classics. Watch highlights below:
