  • A report by Marion Chessell.

     

    Gozo’s newest amateur dramatic society, “Gozo Players”  raised money in support of  FSEG with their first performance of a trio of one act plays called “ High Spirits”. I went to the performance on 22nd April and found that it was professionally done by all the actors and I understand it was full house at The Grand Hotel, Mgarr on both days.

     

    The plays were entertaining and I look forward to future performances the Gozo Players produce. So a big thank you to all involved and thank you for considering the FSEG.

  • ANNUAL  LUNCH  &  RAFFLE

     

    The 2017 lunch in aid of the The Friends of the Sick and the Elderly in Gozo was held on Sunday 7th May 2017 at 12.00 Noon  at the Victoria Scouts Headquarters

    There was a surprise at the annual lunch of Friends of the Sick and Elderly on Gozo on Sunday, when Gozo Players, the island's newest amateur dramatic society, presented the charity with an envelope containing 500 euro.

     

    Making the presentation Revel Barker, founder of Gozo Players, said that there had obviously been basic costs associated with setting up a new acting troupe, not least with finding and making props, scenery and staging to create Gozo's new "Grand Theatre", at the Grand Hotel in Mgarr, as its home base. 

     

    But it had been agreed from the start that any surplus income should go to charity; the Gozo Players had readily accepted the idea of supporting Friends of the Sick and Elderly on the island.

  • 25th Anniversary!

    25th annivDuring December 2014 the FSEG celebrated it's 25th Anniversary since its formation, a landmark of activity in Philanthropic work for Gozo and its residents. It so happens that the anniversary coincides with International Volunteer day 2013.    

    The Gozo NGOs Association organised a three day event to mark the International Volunteer Day 2013.  

    On Thursday 5th December a gathering event for all the Gozitan NGOs was held at the NGO Centre in Xewkija. During this event on behalf of the associate members the Gozo NGOs Association recognized with an award all of its former  Presidents. During the same event the association also commemorated anniversaries celebrated this year by five Gozitan organisations, including the FSEG.

    This ceremony was held under the patronage of the Hon. Ministers, Helena Dalli, Minister for Social Dialogue and Dr Anton Refalo, Minister for Gozo at the NGO Centre - Xewkija.

    On Saturday 7th December 2013 the FSEG and other NGOs also planted a tree in Rundle Gardens to commemorate our Silver Jubilee anniversary. This was preceded by a Thanksgiving Mass at St Francis Church in Victoria, with the participation of all celebrating Gozitan NGOs.
