We are very pleased, stunned and delighted to be awarded 'Best Arts, Culture & Heritage Charity' at the National Charity Awards, sponsored by the Charities Aid Foundation, The Leadership Trust and The Times.

NOISE is chosen as the winner from a massive list of candidates, with the award presented to us by TV and Radio’s lovely Lauren Laverne at the glittering Annual Charity Awards ceremony in London.  The award acknowledges the outstanding work, achievements and the tireless commitment of the NOISE Charity Team.

Charities are shortlisted for specific initiatives which improve the delivery of their charitable objectives, and demonstrate an outstanding example of innovation and best practice from which other charities can learn.

We are only allowed 5 words in our acceptance speech, which is not even enough for all our mums and dads, never mind over 10,000 of you guys! So here goes…

We couldn’t have won this award without the love, support and ongoing dedication of all of the NOISE artists who choose us to help promote their ace talent. Big love also goes out to our funders, trustees, and our amazing team.

It’s really exciting for to get such huge recognition through this award, as we’ve been working so hard for nearly four years now. We love what we do and have achieved so much already, but to win this award has been the icing on the cake.

Over the last ten years many wonderful charities, large and small, have been recognised by the Charity Awards, highlighting the huge effort and commitment that goes into making them work. By being shortlisted, has already demonstrated that it is among the best-managed charities in the UK and I wish everyone involved the best of luck on the night.
