GOZO Day Trip

29th September  2018 – 

Following last year’s shift from June to September for this event, it was again decided to hold the outing in September due to popular demand.  We hosted 90 special guests together with their families, and were assisted by 31 volunteers.  Following an early start we all set off on the 9:00am ferry from Cirkewwa, in Mgarr we where greeted by 2 coaches and 3 wheelchair vans, 2 of which where from Dar Tal-Providenza.  Mass was held at the Xewkija Church which is  the religious seat of the Order in Gozo, which was celebrated by Fr. Brendan Gatt and Mons. Paul Vella  After a lovely service the group headed down towards Marsalforn where they were treated to tea and coffee.  Following some free time and a walk along the promenade we moved on to The Calypso Hotel where as always a lavish lunch was served.  The group made their way back to Mgarr harbour  and returned to Malta with the 4:30pm ferry.  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 Galea and the OMVG who assisted us throughout the day and helped in the planning of this trip.
