20th Anniversary of Fundación CLC World
In 1999, Roy Peires founded Fundación CLC World (formerly The Smile Foundation), to channel both his and CLC World Resorts & Hotel’s desire to make a difference in local communities.
During the following 20 years, Fundación CLC World has made a positive impact on the Costa del Sol and Tenerife, with the sole aim of improving the quality of life for those who need it most.
To commemorate the Fundación’s 20th anniversary, we celebrated with a Gala event. This special occasion recognised the continued support of those present and reaffirmed the Fundación’s commitment to society in general. Furthermore, associations from across the Costa del Sol – local authorities, sponsors, Members, collaborators, media and partners – came together with the Fundación’s ambassador’s and volunteers, as well as representatives of CLC World Resorts & Hotels.
Thank you very much everyone!
Fundación CLC World donated both money and time to the construction of the F. Cruz Dias-ADIMI Care Centre in Mijas which currently provides treatment to more than 220 users.
It is the Foundation’s most ambitious social project to date, endorsed from the moment ADIMI asked for help. The Foundation co-ordinated the work and made it possible with a contribution of €1,600,000.
The centre has medical facilities, three dining rooms, gardens, rooms for psychological treatment and physiotherapy and air conditioning throughout. Spread over two floors, it is equipped with the latest technology. The medical and hospital facilities within the centre can cater for 22 users with consultation rooms, waiting areas and a staff room.
Fundación CLC World co-ordinated the construction work and contributed €1,100,000 in the first phase of the project, €200,000 in the second and covered €300,000 of indirect costs. The contributions of Mijas Council, the Diputación de Málaga and Fundación ONCE also helped to make this dream come true.
Currently, ADIMI receives ongoing support from the Foundation through various campaigns aimed at collecting materials and funds that will improve the quality of life for its users. In a gesture of solidarity with ADIMI, CLC World’s employees are involved in numerous activities that provide improvements to both the building and the services of ADIMI. These contributions are certain to provide even greater professional support and assistance.
The Foundation sponsors a host of events, such as the Cudeca Walkathon on the Costa del Sol to raise funds for an amazing charity that cares for and supports cancer patients and their families. Golf enthusiasts took part in the Mercedes-Benz Tour 19 Amateur Golf Tournament in Tenerife, to raise funds for Asociación Nuevo Futuro (New Future Association) that provides necessities to families living in dire situations.
We also hold several fundraising events each year at CLC World’s Costa del Sol and Tenerife resorts, for charities including the 14-bed Casa Ronald McDonald in Malaga which supports children undergoing hospital treatment and their families.
The generous and enthusiastic involvement of CLC World staff and guests to continue supporting the Fundación keeps this valuable organisation in the spotlight. For news about our latest initiatives, please click here.
Collaboration with organisations, associations and individuals
