ST. JULIAN'S, Malta - In celebration of Hilton Worldwide’s annual Global Month of Service, throughout October, 110 volunteers from Hilton Malta have refurbished a crafts and pottery room used by Children and Adults using the services of the Inspire Foundation. The Inspire Foundation helps over 1000 individuals with various disabilities ranging from Down Syndrome, Autism, Cerebral Palsy and others. They do this through many services and disability programmes that are offered at a highly subsidised rate and in some cases free of charge.

Community service is a tradition embedded in the company for nearly 100 years, and throughout the year Team Members dedicate their time, passion and unique brand of hospitality to create positive change in their local communities. Hilton Malta’s efforts are a part of Hilton’s month-long celebration of the company’s year-round commitment to serving and enriching the communities where we live, work and travel.

“It was great to see our Team Members and Suppliers come together for a good cause. The Inspire Foundation provides services to many people at a subsidised rate and sustainable provision of this service is only possible with the help of donations and sponsors” said Matthew Mullan, general manager at Hilton Malta.

"When we visited Inspire Foundation in Marsascala to discuss our wish to partner with them for our Global Month of Service event, we immediately noted that the crafts and pottery rooms used by the clients as part of their treatment was in need of repair. We decided to focus our energy on this one project and make sure to deliver a full makeover to the two rooms."

Contractors and team members came together to work over a two week period in their own time to strip the existing rooms down and set them back up with new ceilings, flooring, furniture and health and safety equipment."

Her Excellency Marie Louise Coleiro Preca, President of The Republic of Malta, took time out of her busy schedule on Oct. 28 in order to personally visit all the Hilton team members at Inspire Foundation who were busy sanding, painting, cleaning and prepping the room for the reopening.

"We hope that members of Inspire Foudnation will enjoy the improved facilities and that it will benefit their treatment. We would like to thank our suppliers who have greatly assisted with this project Saw Ltd, Halmann, Franky Plastering Ltd, Makaw, Mark Schembri, Curtain Call, Inside Out, Cuschieri Aluminum, Calamatta, Macmed, Satariano, CV woodworks, Classic furniture, GES, Elektra and Gasan."
