We are delighted to announce that Cerebral Palsy Scotland has received £29,500 from Global’s Make Some Noise to support children and adults with cerebral palsy.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of listeners across Global’s radio brands – Capital, Heart, LBC, Classic FM, Smooth, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold, we have received £19,584 to support our baby group in 2022/2023 and a further £10,000 to support children and adults with cerebral palsy in 2023/2024.
Thanks to Global’s support, our fortnightly baby group will restart in April, following a pause during the Covid pandemic. Run by our team of specialist therapists, the baby group is an important and much-needed space for children aged 0-2 and their families who are concerned about their child’s motor development, or who have been given a diagnosis of cerebral palsy. Baby group sessions help children develop movement to enable play, exploration and communication, and also allow parents and carers of young children to meet each other and share their experiences.
Now in its eighth year of service, Global’s Make Some Noise has supported over 400 local charities whose work has helped a total of 150,000 people across the UK. As well as supporting Cerebral Palsy Scotland, money raised has paid for food banks, befriending projects for the elderly and isolated, cancer wellbeing programmes, domestic abuse refuges, and employment training.
Emma Bradley, Director of Global Goodness at Global said:
It’s been an incredibly tough couple of years for everyone. With the cost of living continuing to increase many more people will turn to local groups for help, putting extra strain on their resources. So we’re pleased to be able to help small charities at the centre of communities and will continue to raise money and awareness for their vital work.”
