Family Fun Day Out at Funland Paceville


The Maltese Association hosted the annual Family Day Out, marking the first Hospitaller event of the New Year. This time round the selected location was Funland in Paceville. This break with tradition presented a challenge in itself, but the venue really lived up to its name, offering various entertainments with the After Glow animators doing their utmost to keep our children and families amused. The animators mingled amongst the excited kids and also dressed up in Disney characters and roamed around posing for family photos. The children had a whale of a time, some of them even dared to climb on stage to join the animators in the cheerful miming acts!

A variety of finger food was served in abundance, whilst coffee, teas, soft drinks and biscuits were available throughout. Members, aspirants and volunteers, including two nurses were also in attendance; we cannot not fail to mention that a number of foreign prison inmates also lent a valuable hand making short shrift of lifting wheelchairs whenever required. We are most appreciative to their gracious assistance towards our guests with special needs and for selflessly offering their precious free time to community work. Last but certainly not least, our boundless and immense gratitude also goes to the Malta International Airport who during the festive season are always so loyal in living up to their unfailing commitment, precious support and great kindness as has been over the years to make it possible for us to reach out to numerous economically challenged families at this special time of the year to give our special guests a respite and delightful day full of fun to remember!
