With Anglesey Model Village being all about this fabulous island of Anglesey, we want to make a positive difference to the community around us.
This comes in many forms, including encouraging visitors to make charitable donations and providing assistance to local causes, community organisations, events and charities with the provision of raffle prizes and other services.
Since 2021 we’ve partnered with Anglesey Foodbank. Anyone can find themselves at crisis point and need help from a foodbank. Every day people on the Isle of Anglesey go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food makes a big difference.
The foodbank partners with a wide range of care professionals such as doctors, health visitors, social workers and police to identify people in crisis and issue them with a foodbank voucher.
Foodbank clients bring their voucher to the foodbank centre where it can be redeemed for three days’ emergency food. Volunteers meet clients over a warm drink or free hot meal and are able to signpost people to agencies able to solve the longer-term problem.
A typical food parcel contains a minimum of three days of nutritionally balanced foods that have been donated by the local community. The food parcel can be adapted according to the family's needs as well as dietary requirements. Additional assistance can be given to those with mobility needs or are unwell.
Anglesey Model Village also supports and number of other local charities, good causes, community organisations and local events.
As we are currently receiving a high volume of requests for support, we have decided to focus our efforts on helping those based in Anglesey. Apologies to those looking for support but do not meet this initial selection criteria.
If you do meet our criteria, we will consider your request, but cannot guarantee support – please therefore provide as much information about your organisation’s objectives and how your organisation helps the people of Anglesey. Remember to make sure it is the organisation that is contacting us - we will not consider requests from personal email accounts or personal social media accounts.
We can provide a voucher for a ticket and this can be used for fundraising. We can also offer other means of raising funds or provide assistance - please speak to us about your requirements. We do hope your event and fundraising goes well, good luck.
