Cruise along to Saint Malo in celebration of the Wessex Heartbeat 25th anniversary

As well as carrying out incredibly valuable and beneficial work, Wessex Heartbeat are taking to the waves and offering a fantastic mini-cruise to its supporters on the 17th - 19th November 2017! ​



Snows Group have supported the hard work of Wessex Heartbeat over the previous years and are proud to have this as one of our chosen charities. We are now very excited to announce the 25th Anniversary of this brilliant organisation and their pre-Christmas Mini-cruise to St.Malo, France with Brittany Ferries.

This is the ideal mini break to completely indulge and enjoy the sun, sea and sights while soaking up the culture of a truly beautiful location. What better way to end the year! We know how much of a wonderful cruising experience this is, after supporting the charity on their very successful voyage to France last year.

All aboard! Brittany Ferries flagship Pont Aven is due to set sail from Portsmouth docks on Friday 17th November at 8:15pm. During the evening you may want to walk around the ship and explore, as Pont-Aven is the largest cruise ferry provided by Brittany Ferries and can carry just over two thousand passengers. There will be plenty to discover on board, including a superb pool and leisure area, a wrap around promenade for pleasant deck strolls, and a five deck high atrium with panoramic views. There are also plenty of luxurious dining facilities on board as well, with an a la carte restaurant, cocktail piano bar and 2-storey lounge bar and entertainment area.

Saturday morning the real travelling begins. After taking advantage of the delicious self service buffet breakfast, you can begin taking in one of the most historic and fascinating parts of France. The day can then be spent discovering the walled city of Saint Malo, where bars, shops, and restaurants line the traditional cobbled streets. Further places you may want to visit are the medieval town of Dinan, the market at Dinard, or have lunch in Cancale, which is world famous for it's oysters​. Alternatively, you can even enjoy the glorious sea air as you look along the horizons and stroll along one of several sandy beaches in the area.

After a day packed full of French culture and holiday activities, the evening journey back to Portsmouth will include a delightful four course gala dinner in the La Flora restaurant for everyone to enjoy. Passengers will then arrive back in the UK on Sunday morning. This really is a mini-trip full of wonderful opportunities to see the best of France and experience the lively atmosphere of Saint Malo. The cost of the trip is just £99.95 per person, including a charitable contribution of £17 to Wessex Heartbeat, who work tirelessly to support Wessex Cardiac Centre in order for it to be one of the most respected Cardiac Centres available.
