Smooth Radio's Kate Garraway has completed her busiest day ever by taking on 24 jobs in just 24 hours, all to raise money for our charity, Global’s Make Some Noise.
Powered by endurance and sheer determination, Kate job-hopped from window cleaner, personal trainer and train platform announcer to barista, shoe-shiner and barber during her 24-hour marathon.
She also cleaned the shark tank at the Sea Life London Aquarium, appeared on stage in the West End musical Mamma Mia!, mucked out the pig stable at Vauxhall City Farm, cleaned the dressing rooms at Good Morning Britain and warmed-up the Loose Women studio audience at ITV.
Although her challenge has finished, you can still donate now!
Global’s Make Some Noise funds projects and small projects across the UK which support disadvantaged children, young people and their families. Now in its fifth year, Global has united all its radio brands – Classic FM, Heart, Capital, Smooth, LBC, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold – to help young people living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.
Kate Garraway said of her challenge: “I’m giving myself the busiest 24 hours of my life to highlight how easily small charities can get overlooked in our busy day-to-day lives - until we need them.
"If you’re a parent and you’ve just found out that your child has an incurable illness, it doesn’t matter if you’re a lawyer, a TV presenter, a window cleaner or whatever, you need help - and fast.
"The small charities supported by Global’s Make Some Noise give that vital help to thousands of people every day, often doing it in their own time, on top of their actual jobs. They are small charities that make a big impact and Global’s Make Some Noise gives them a chance to be heard and raises vital funds so they can continue their incredible work.”
