CLC World proud to receive Peer Award for charity work.

At The Peer Awards on February 28th, held in Fortnum and Mason’s Drawing Room in London, CLC World Resorts & Hotels was proud to receive the ‘Collaborating with Charities’ award for our charity initiative, CLC World Charity Holidays.

CLC World Charity Holidays provides ‘a break away to come together’ for UK based charities and individuals. Providing much needed and appreciated family holidays away from the stresses of everyday life, CLC World Charity Holidays is designed to make a lasting difference to those who need it most, including disadvantaged, sick and terminally ill children.

Since its inception in 2016, CLC World Charity Holidays has awarded almost 500 weeks of holiday accommodation to a variety of causes including Carers Trust, Give Us Time, Bodie Hodges Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Holiday Fund and Dreams Come True, with a further 200+ weeks allocated for 2020.

The Peer Awards recognise innovation in business through the sharing of inspirational ideas. Finalists in the awards are themselves the judging panel, allowing the dissemination of those ideas across business sectors and regions.

Graham Wilding, UK Managing Director, said: “It is a privilege to receive this award for the wonderful work CLC World Charity Holidays has done, particularly as it is recognition from our peers. We were inspired by the work so many companies are putting into Corporate Responsibility.

As a holiday company, we are in the fortunate position to provide time away for those that need it most by offering CLC World free holiday accommodation. Recognition of our initiative, and the additional support we provide to the charities we work with, is an honour.”

CLC World’s charity Fundación CLC World, based in Spain, was also a finalist at the awards for the ‘Giving to the Community’ category.

Siobhan McGowan, Head of Dreams at Dreams Come True, congratulated CLC World on their award, saying: “This award was very much deserved for all the hard work and dedication you all put into making amazing holiday experiences for children, young people and families! It’s a pleasure to work with a company filled with people who truly care about making a difference to the lives of children and young people with serious medical conditions.”

The success of CLC World at the awards is down to the dedication and hard work of the CLC World team across the globe. Working with local communities, volunteering, organising the charity holidays, providing support to the families and ongoing collaboration with the charities themselves shows that CLC World is more than a holiday company, it’s a company that cares.
