Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa Concert a Success! (July 2011)

 On Thursday, 21st July 2011, The Corinthia Palace Hotel and Spa held a Mid Summer Garden Party, in aid of Beyond the Moon, an International non-profit charitable association that aids seriously ill children by giving them the holiday of a lifetime and hence the opportunity of spending valuable quality time with their loved ones, in what could well be their last real vacation together.

For this unique occasion, The Band of the Hampshire Constabulary of the United Kingdom gave a special performance under the leadership of Captain P. J. Curtis of the Royal Marines. Initially an amateur concert wind band formed in 1895 to promote Police Service in the community, The Hampshire Police Band comprises serving and retired officers, police staff of the Hampshire Constabulary and their relatives. In order to maintain an instrumental balance, there are also some valued honorary members.

The evening proved to be a most enjoyable event and a grand total of  €1500.00 was collected which together with funds collected from other similar initiatives will enable Management and Staff of the Corinthia Palace Hotel and Spa to nominate their seventh Maltese child suffering from a life-threatening disease, so that the child together with his/her family can enjoy a completely cost-free and care-free holiday in a child-friendly holiday destination, far away from hospitals and daily treatments. The Band has made numerous visits to the USA & travelled extensively throughout Europe playing over 20 engagements per year for the benefit of many charities and organisations.

In July 2011 the Band was in Malta for its third visit and this was the second performance at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa to raise funds for Beyond the Moon and appeared by courtesy of the Commissioner of Police. The event was entirely sponsored by The Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa together with various established local companies.

Beyond the Moon, is a Belgium-based charity, which has been adopted by The Corinthia Hotels International as its Community Partner throughout its hotels worldwide. Further details about Beyond the Moon may be found via this link
