Hope Against Cancer to receive donations from holiday-goers

Charitable Travel forgoes commission for charity.

Hope Against Cancer has been awarded a place as a beneficiary charity of Charitable Travel’s 2021 More to Explore, Malta Campaign.

Since lockdown has somewhat lifted and certain countries have been given the ‘green’ light to travel to, avid travellers and those in desperate need of a getaway have been busy booking their next adventure.

Helping holiday-goers to book their well-deserved escape, is Charitable Travel, a registered not-for-private profit social enterprise and financially protected travel agency.


Their purpose and mission is to help customers with their holiday plans and at the same time support the great work that UK-based charities, like Hope Against Cancer, deliver.


When you book a holiday or cruise with Charitable Travel, they sacrifice travel agency commission so the customer can make a free 5% donation to a charity of their choice.

Charitable Travel gave a limited number of charities an extra opportunity to become a beneficiary of a campaign focused on encouraging customers to book a trip to the beautiful islands of Malta.


As a beneficiary charity, Hope Against Cancer will receive a 5% donation when people choose to book in for this destination. Malta is currently on England’s green travel list.

This is a very exciting opportunity for the Leicestershire and Rutland cancer charity. It was granted beneficiary status following a rigorous application reviewed by a judging panel.


The donations that Hope receive will fund cutting-edge research and make more clinical trial places available to local people.


The charity strives for a future where more people survive cancer. Hope funds innovative research that leads to improved treatments and better outcomes for cancer patients.

Nigel Rose, Chief Executive at Hope Against Cancer has said: “What Charitable Travel are doing for Hope Against Cancer and charities alike is fantastic. It allows holiday-goers to donate to us, within what they are spending on a holiday.


"I and the Hope team feel very privileged that they chose us as a beneficiary and want to thank them for their continuous support.”

Ally Ware, Marketing Manager at Charitable Travel has said: “Working with fantastic charities such as Hope Against Cancer to promote travel to beautiful destinations like Malta is a unique and brilliant opportunity to demonstrate our #TravelForGood ethos.


"By enabling supporters of Hope Against Cancer to donate 5% of their holiday cost, which is usually the largest sum a household will spend each year, to a charity they hold dear is an incredible way of generating donations which will change lives, while also supporting the travel industry as it re-emerges following the Covid-19 pandemic.”
