Support Dogs is set to benefit from a year-long fundraising and awareness campaign by media and entertainment group Global.

Global’s Make Some Noise funds and empowers small charities like Support Dogs, helping disadvantaged children, young people and their families across the UK.

Global’s Make Some Noise is supported by the media and entertainment group, Global, home to some of the UK’s biggest radio brands including Heart, Capital, Classic FM, Smooth, LBC, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold.

They come together to raise money and awareness for small charities and provide training to boost skills and build sustainability. 

Global’s Make Some Noise is supporting Support Dogs’ autism assistance programme. The charity trains autism assistance dogs for children aged between three and ten, and the dogs are trained to provide safety for the child and reduce stress in social environments.

Youngster Sam Mills (pictured left) from Sheffield is a Support Dogs’ client and has had his life transformed by his autism assistance dog Willow.

“We're delighted to announce that Support Dogs has/have been selected as a Global's Make Some Noise charity,” said Danny Anderson, Support Dogs’ fundraising manager.

“We’re hoping it will raise our profile and also much-needed cash to support our autism assistance programme. We rely entirely on donations to fund our work, as we provide our life-changing services to our clients completely free of charge and we struggle to meet increasing demand.”

Friday October 11 is in Global’s Make Some Noise Day. All of Global’s radio stations and people up and down the country will be doing something to shout about, big and small, to raise money for Make Some Noise.
