GOZO Day Trip

Saturday 28th September 2019

The much awaited Gozo trip was once again a huge success amongst our patients.  This year’s 89 strong contingent was made up of patients, children and volunteers who flocked to Cirkewwa for an early start.  We all set off with the 9:00am ferry  to Mgarr where we were greeted by 2 coaches and Chris F. Galea with his special purpose van accommodating 5 wheelchairs.  Mass was celebrated by Rev. Mgr. Paul Vella at The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Ta’ Pinu in Gharb.  After a lovely service the group headed down towards Marsalforn where they were treated to some cool refreshments before heading to The Calypso Hotel for lunch, where as always a lavish buffet was served.  Following lunch the group enjoyed some free time where they could walk along the promenade and enjoy an ice-cream or a coffee.  The coaches once again collected the group at 3:15pm to take us back to Mgarr harbour in time to catch the 4:30pm ferry back to Malta.  The cost of this special outing was sponsored by CASUMO Services Ltd, without whose kind contribution would not be able to treat our dear patients to such a lovely day.  Special thanks also goes to Chris F. Galea and the OMVG who assisted us throughout the day and to Dar Tal-Providenza who kindly assist us with another special purpose van to accommodate more wheelchair bound patients.
