Eden Leisure Group, and specifically 89.7 Bay set up The Bay Kids Foundation to use our resources to help others in need. Over the years we’ve raised tens of thousands for many children’s homes and other charities through various events and activities.
Our staff are also very active in doing their bit, often quite literally, such as raising money for Puttinu Cares as we did recently in a friendly football tournament.
Eden Leisure gives financial support to Rotary Malta and Dar tal-Providenza.
Apart from being a great team-building activity, we believe in bringing our staff together to help those in need. Most recently, Eden Leisure Staff worked with Din L-Art Helwa to organise a clean-up of the newly restored Fort Wignacourt in St. Paul’s Bay.
We host national CSR campaigns
Owning and operating 89.7 Bay, Malta’s no. 1 hit music station allows us to reach all segments of society, particularly the youth. We feel it is our responsibility to use our position to give positive messages and create awareness about issues which are pertinent to youngsters, which may help make a difference to their lives. In 2014, we launched the #StopHate campaign to raise awareness about Cyber-bullying. In 2015 we will be highlighting the issues about drink-driving in our #dontrisk campaign.
We like to lend a hand
Wherever we can, we want to help. The Special Olympics has a formidable bowling team who train regularly for free at the Eden SuperBowl and have obtained excellent results in competitions. Skola Sajf children also use our bowling facilities for free during the summer months. We also regularly invite various children’s charities to attend our activities for free because we believe we have the responsibility to be supportive to those who need that extra helping hand.
We encourage fitness
Owning and operating one of Malta’s leading health and fitness clubs, it goes without saying that we, as a group, believe in the importance of fitness. We also believe that life-fitness starts at a young age, which is why we have created an initiative designed to keep children active and away from TVs and video games for the summer. With our Free Summer Bowling initiative, all children can bowl, every day throughout the summer holidays, for free!
