CLC WORLD IN THE COMMUNITY
CLC World’s business aspirations have always been aligned with a sense of social responsibility. We are committed to helping, and actively support, charitable works and local causes.
From the provision of vital equipment for a Spanish hospital to sponsoring a local football team and donating holiday vouchers, CLC World believes in assisting worthwhile causes.
As well as two charitable initiatives – CLC World Charity Holidays and The Smile Foundation – the company and its staff support a variety of charitable causes across the CLC World through fundraising activities and donations.
CLC World Charity Holidays
CLC World Charity Holidays is designed to make a lasting difference to those who need it most, particularly those who care for loved ones.
For many, going on holiday is taken for granted but for those responsible for caring for a relative or friend this can be a challenge. To date, we have worked with a number of charities including the Cystic Fibrosis Holiday Fund, Carer’s Trust and Give Us Time, providing much appreciated family time away from the stresses of everyday life.
In 2017, we will be donating 333 weeks of free accommodation to a host of selected charities. All of CLC World’s resorts will participate in the scheme.
The Smile Foundation
The Smile Foundation was set up by CLC World in 1999 in Spain to support organisations on the Costa del Sol. The foundation’s reach was then increased to include Tenerife.
The Smile Foundation has sponsored numerous good causes and supported many individuals, charities and organisations over the years with tens of thousands of Euros going to those in need. Projects have included supporting the construction of a hospital designed to help young people with mental and physical difficulties, and contributing to the construction of a kitchen for a charity that provides food for the homeless.
Fundraising events are regularly held across CLC World’s Spanish and Tenerife resorts.
