PRESS RELEASE MAY 2016
THE FAMILY HAVEN has been selected as one of this year’s beneficiaries to receive funding and support through Global’s Make Some Noise.
The Family Haven is a day centre in Spa Road, Gloucester for families in need with children under 5. The children play and learn in the OFSTED registered nursery whilst their parents receive support and advice, make friends and more. It provides families with a nourishing meal, access to a bathroom, laundry and free second-hand clothing.
Lorraine Barrett, the Centre Manager, says “We’re really excited to be part of this year’s Make Some Noise campaign. I think it’s rather apt as our children certainly make plenty of noise in the nursery. Seriously though, we are hoping to get enough funding to employ a qualified nursery nurse for two years, which will help to ensure we can provide good quality childcare for some of our county’s most vulnerable children.”
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.
On Friday October 7th 2016, Global will unite its brands and friends from the world of media and entertainment to give a voice to small charities and projects across the UK that struggle to raise awareness.
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 THE FAMILY HAVEN this year.”
