Corinthia Palace, Attard Services Ltd and Malta Classic will all contribute to the charity.

Malta Classic recently announced that, for the fourth year running, it has appointed Beyond the Moon as its exclusive charity. Beyond the Moon, which is the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa’s officially-associated charity, works to send seriously-ill children and their families on the holiday of a lifetime.

As a result, various fundraising initiatives will take place over the course of Malta Classic. Among them, will be a children’s traffic game set up by Attard Services Ltd, as well as a stand manned by Corinthia Palace staff, with books available in return for a donation. The hotel has also organised a raffle, with top prizes including weekend breaks at local Corinthia and Radisson hotels, as well as the star prize of three nights’ accommodation at the 5-star Corinthia Hotel Budapest.

“We’re thrilled to be raising money for Beyond the Moon once again,” says Marisa Xuereb, who coordinates the Corinthia Palace’s charity efforts,  and to be putting our efforts into ensuring that more seriously-ill children can enjoy a holiday with their families as a break from their treatment and time in hospital.”

The Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa began raising money for Beyond the Moon in 2006 and has since collected over €86,000 for the organisation. “It costs €4,000 to cover a holiday for each child, so every effort makes a significant contribution to our goal,” Mrs Xuereb adds.
