Make Some Noise Award!

Good News!! Not only are YLF launching new services across Kent this month, but we are also delighted to announce that YLF is one of the first ever charities to receive support from Global's campaign 'Make Some Noise'!

Hopefully you will recall us announcing our involvement with Global's campaign back in 2014 - and today we have received brilliant news that YLF have been awarded a huge £5000 from the appeal!!!

Stephen Gray, YLF CEO said,

“The Young Lives Foundation are delighted to have received a donation from Global’s ‘Make Some Noise' Campaign. The funds will enable the charity to reach out to a wider range of disadvantaged children and young people across Kent and ensure they are given the opportunity to experience the positive activity programme that has been so well received by others.

With cuts to local authority funding for positive activity opportunities, these much needed funds can enhance the programme on offer and really make a difference in the lives of local children. It was really good to be able to ‘make some noise’ and take part in the campaign, now we can start planning for the benefits the young people will get from the generosity of all involved. Thank you!”

We're delighted to be one of the children’s and young people’s charities from across the UK benefiting from Global’s Make Some Noise. Emma Bradley, Global Director said,

"Global's Make Some Noise is delighted to support Young Lives Foundation. We're huge fans of the work that they do, and we're so pleased that they've been part of our inaugural campaign…to make some noise and change young lives."

Once again, a huge thank you to Global's Make Some Noise for selecting and awarding YLF in the first ever Make Some Noise campaign!
