Live Life Give Life charity ball

CLC World Charity Holidays has continued to support those who need it most by donating a week’s accommodation to the Live Life Give Life charity.

The Live Life Give Life charity was set up in March 2006 by two friends, Emily Thackray and Emma Harris. Both suffering from Cystic Fibrosis, the two friends established LLGL in order to promote the awareness of and need for organ donors when it transpired Emily needed a double lung transplant as a result of her CF. By 2008 they gained full charity status in the UK.

Since its inception, the charity has gone from strength-to-strength through a variety of campaigns, fundraising events and other activities. It not only promotes awareness but also actively encourages people to speak about organ donation and how uplifting it can be to save another life. Just one organ donor can save up to seven lives!

Fundraising is an integral part of LLGL’s ability to continue their vital work and when CLC World Charity Holidays was given the chance to help, we jumped at the opportunity.

On 6TH May, a charity auction ball was held at the exclusive Belfry Hotel, Birmingham. The ball was held to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the successful life-saving lung transplant of Rachel Prosser – a ambassador of the Live Life Give Life organisation and a living testament to the excellent work carried out by the LLGL team.

As expected the ball was a resounding success on the night, raising nearly £7,000 – £1,350 of which was made from the CLC World Charity Holidays donation. The lucky bidder and winner of a week’s accommodation at CLC World’s flagship resort on the Costa del Sol or Tenerife is Katy Phelps.

Everyone at CLC World Charity Holidays would like to thank Live Life Give Life for giving us the chance to help such a worthy cause and raise money towards important research, development and awareness into organ donation and transplants.
