Corinthia Palace Hotel Raises Over €80,000 for Beyond the Moon

4th December 2017

The money was raised from various events and initiatives organised by the hotel team including this month’s Perfect Christmas Gift Fair, which raised €6,200.

The proceeds raised in 2017 by Corinthia Palace Hotel will allow four Maltese families with a seriously ill child to enjoy a cost-free dream family holiday.

The children will holiday courtesy of Beyond the Moon, the international non-profit charitable association which has been Corinthia’s nominated charity for the last 11 years.

The money was raised from various events and initiatives organised by the hotel team including this month’s Perfect Christmas Gift Fair, which raised €6,200.

Held in the Corinthia Ballroom, the two-day Fair raised attracted local craftspeople, stalls selling gifts and festive food prepared by the hotel’s kitchen. The hotel’s lobby was awash with concept design pieces, fashion and jewellery stalls, namely from Eclecticist, Charles & Ron, and 202 Jewellery. There were also workshops for adults - on the art of table laying and napkin folding - and one for children demonstrating how to make festive cookies.

The funds were topped up by De La Rue Currency and Security Print Ltd, the local Maltese Division of the UK based De La Rue Plc, who organised a family day in October in aid of Beyond the Moon and raised €8,000. De La Rue is the largest commercial producer of banknotes and passports in the world. From this amount, another two families with sick children will have the opportunity of enjoying a vacation of a lifetime.

Visitors to the Fair at the hotel were also treated to entertainment in the shape of the choir from the Stagecoach Performing Arts School, and bagpipe and drummers from The Jackson’s Pipe Band Malta.

“Our collaboration with Beyond the Moon has helped us raise funds for 20 Maltese children to enjoy valuable time with their families on a holiday for a lifetime. We are proud to be a part of this scheme,” says General Manager David Woodward.

During the Fair, Mr Woodward also presented HE Marie Louise Coleiro Preco with a cheque of €500 for the Maltese Community Chest Fund.
