A SPECIAL event to help celebrate recovery from mental health problems and addiction is to be held on Anglesey this week.

Between 12 and 4pm on Thursday (August 2), residents can pay a visit to the Isgraig football pitch in Llangefni to join in with a free family fun day.

There will be facepainting, penalty shoot-outs, live music, plenty of food a bouncy castle and so much more available to guests on the day.

Some of those in attendance will also be talking about their recovery stories and wellbeing sessions will also be held throughout the day.

The overall aim of the event is to promote some of the recovery organisations that are available in the Llangefni area and to provide useful information on mental health well-being.

"We want to reduce the stigma surrounding the topic of mental health and addiction," one of the organisers said.

"We are reaching out to support people in the community who need it whilst also providing our community with a fun-filled family day out."
