The Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa is proud to announce that through its Perfect Christmas Gift Fair, €6,102 has been raised in aid of Beyond the Moon.
Once again, the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa has shown its commitment to charity by raising a record-breaking sum for Beyond the Moon over the course of two jam-packed days. As a result, another Maltese child and their family will be able to enjoy a very special, all-expenses-paid holiday away from the worry of hospitals and medication, bringing the total number of children that have been funded by the Corinthia Palace so far to 20 over the last decade.

The funds were raised at the hotel’s annual Perfect Christmas Gift Fair on the 19th and 20th November. Record numbers attended this year’s event, with thousands flocking to visit the artisan stalls and boutiques laid out in the Corinthia Ballroom, trying their hand at the workshops, and enjoying the varied entertainment and refreshments on offer.
“This was definitely our busiest fair yet and we’re so thrilled with the results,” says Marisa Xuereb, who coordinates the Hotel’s fundraising work. “Donations were raised through a combination of efforts, including a raffle with generously-donated prizes, and workshops including a cookie-decorating one for children led by some of our most creative chefs.”
