Prince Edward to return to Malta

Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex will be visiting Malta next week as a special guest of the President's Award Malta, in preparation for the forthcoming International Award Forum. This is a triennial event chaired by Prince Edward and which brings together National Award Authorities of The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award from all over the world.

Given the non-profit status of the Award scheme, the Forum 2012 Malta is entirely dependent on the generous support of our sponsors.

During Prince Edweard's visit, various events are being organised to thank the Maltese government and sponsors for their support, namely Banif Bank, Corinthia Hotels and Resorts, the Janatha Stubbs Foundation and the KDM Group as main sponsors, and Delicata Wines and the Strickland Foundation as event sponsors.

Prince Edward will be guest of honour at a fundraising dinner on November 15. In addition to supporting the International Award Forum, some of the funds raised will be donated to local charitable organisations Inspire and to Equal Partners Foundation. Enquires about the dinner may be made by email on

The Programme aims to be the leading youth achievement award for young people that brings together experiences and life skills to create committed citizens of the world.
