How we’re using our Global’s Make Some Noise grant

Global’s Make Some Noise has today announced that is has awarded Our Time, a charity which supports children and families affected by parental mental illness, over £28,000 to fund the delivery of family workshops across two London boroughs. 

The funds will, in part, allow Our Time to launch a new KidsTime Workshop in Ealing in November 2020 and covers a year of support. The remaining funds will go towards a new KidsTime Workshop in Tower Hamlets which we are launching in partnership with the Council and NHS. This is due to launch in September 2020.

Thanks to the generosity of listeners across Global’s radio brands, these funds will be welcome news to many families in this time of uncertainty where many services have been stripped away or cancelled. The workshops will offer a lifeline to families in both Ealing and Tower Hamlets and a place to go to when the current situation changes.

Dympna Cunnane, CEO of Our Time said, “Our Time would like to express our gratitude to Global’s Make Some Noise for their generous grant which will fund two new family workshops in London.

We appreciate all the effort that has gone into raising funds for good causes, ours included. This will make a difference to over 30 vulnerable families who are now dealing with the additional stress of having to stay indoors for many weeks without the support of school, friends and family. We are continuing to support the families in different ways now and your help means that we can keep the children in mind during this difficult time.”
