Charity: Global Award's auction raises 500 pounds for charity

As part of our continued partnership with Global, we recently auctioned off a pair of Global Awards tickets for the big event on Thursday 1st March at London’s Eventim Apollo. The night is all about bringing together the UK’s most loved radio stations and creating a number of musical award categories based on the public’s favourite tracks and artists of 2017.

The winners from each category will be announced on the night, where there will also be guest appearances from Sam Smith, Rita Ora, Kasabian, Martin Garrix, Andrea Bocelli and more. 

To celebrate the first ever Global’s awards, we gave our customers and social media audience the chance to bid for a pair of tickets, with all proceeds going to Global’s Make Some Noise*. This was advertised by sending an email to over 17 thousand customers and colleagues, along with raising awareness across CarShop’s main Facebook page.

The results of this auction ended with the highest bid coming in at £500, which made Pete Oldknow the lucky winner of the tickets. Aimee Hayhurst, Global’s Make Some Noise, Partnerships Development Manager had this to say about the auction:

‘Global’s Make Some Noise was delighted to be able to offer CarShop tickets to the sold out Global Awards, and CarShop’s dedication to supporting children and young people living with illness, disability and lack of opportunity led them to use these to raise an additional £500 for Global’s Make Some Noise through a silent auction. Thank you CarShop!’

We wish Pete all the best on what promises to be an extraordinarily entertaining night! 

*Global’s Make Some Noise is a national charity, established in 2014. The charity gives a voice to small charities and projects across the UK that struggle to raise awareness. Global has brought together its brands, Heart, Capital, Capital XTRA, Radio X, Classic FM, LBC, Smooth and Gold, which reach a combined 24.3 million people every week, to raise money to change young lives.
