May 22, 2017 – CLC World Resorts & Hotels’ charitable initiative – CLC World Charity Holidays – is providing 333 weeks of free accommodation during 2017 for select UK-based charities. As part of this initiative, seven families from Give Us Time, a charity offering UK military families a chance to rest and rehabilitate, stayed at the CLC Club La Costa World multi-resort for a week in May.
A cava reception was held for the families hosted by Jennie Bond, UK broadcaster and journalist. Jennie, CLC World’s brand ambassador, enjoyed meeting the Give Us Time families and hearing about their experiences. In her welcome speech, she wished them well, saying:
“I understand that being away from family for long periods poses all kinds of strains on the relationship and I hope being here is giving you time to readjust as a family unit.”
The families also enjoyed a trip to the beautiful mountain town of Ronda and plenty of time to relax and enjoy time together as a family at the beach, poolside or in the nearby town of Fuengirola.
CLC World’s Director of UK Operations, Graham Wilding, said:
“We designed CLC World Charity Holidays to turn going on holiday into a reality for those who need it most, supporting charities such as Give Us Time, Cystic Fibrosis Holiday Fund and Carers Trust. Many of us take going on holiday for granted but this can be a challenge for many coping with illness, time apart and caring for a loved one. Helping to change this and increase awareness of these causes is key to our initiative.”
CLC World Charity Holidays looks forward to welcoming more families to CLC World’s worldwide resorts throughout 2017.

About Give Us Time:
Give Us Time takes holidays donated by owners of holiday groups, hotels, holiday homes and timeshares, and matches them with military families in need of rest, rehabilitation and reconnection after tours of duty, physical or mental injuries and bereavement. The charity was founded in 2012 by Dr Liam Fox MP who, in his time as an Army medic and later as Secretary of State for Defence, became aware that homecomings were not always as easy as might be expected for service personnel or their families.
