Last year CLIA UK & Ireland and the Family Holiday Association partnered to bring hope and happiness to families facing life’s toughest challenges.

Fundraising efforts by CLIA UK & Ireland’s members and supporters meant that over 388 struggling families will be able to go on a precious day out at the British seaside or local tourist attraction. To read about what we got up to, family stories and who was involved, scroll to the bottom!

We are excited to continue working together this year – see how you could get involved below!

CLIA Cycle to the Ball

Last December, 10 intrepid cruise industry cyclists took to the saddle to tackle an 80 mile cycle to the CLIA Winter Ball raising over £7,000! If you fancy registering for this year’s event, please email Izzy.

Together we can help even more families find sunshine through the rain – thank you for helping to make a difference!
