Virginia Crosbie donates £100 and lends a hand at Malltraeth Ymlaen community Christmas lunch

Ynys Môn MP Virginia Crosbie has helped give out Christmas lunches to older people in Newborough after donating £100 to help fund the gesture.

Virginia went to the Pritchard Jones Institute on Friday to take part in the event organised by community group Malltraeth Ymlaen, who also organised transport so people could attend.

The buffet-style lunch from the nearby Red Squirrel Cafe was followed by a raffle.

“I made some new friends in this part of the island and I would like to thank the organisers Jude Williams, Gill and Alan Smith for doing such a wonderful job with the lunch and to the Director of Malltreath Ymlaen Raymond Robertshaw for inviting me,” said Virginia.

“This is just the sort of community spirit that defines the very best of our island and it was a pleasure to be part of it and help fund it. Malltraeth Ymlaen is just brilliant.

“The £100 came from money I receive from completing surveys and all of it is given to local good causes on Anglesey. If you feel you could benefit, please get in touch.”
