Impact

We could measure our impact on the community we support by :

  • The hundreds of boxes of model kits sent out this year.
  • The thousands of hours of volunteer-led activity we have provided.
  • The hundreds of thank you letters we receive per year from not only beneficiaries but from partners and family members who see a fundamental change in their loved ones.

We are proud to be able to support our Armed Forces and Emergency Service personnel if they find model making to be a curative hobby.

[model making] controlled and pushed aside my  crippling anxiety but also got me out of the house to model shows…  I have a drive and sense of purpose now.

  • I have heard many reports from veterans who make models as a distraction and time out from daily worries, ruminations, anxieties. Thank you for your part in their recovery, and the act of completion which model making brings, a sense of achievement with a lasting reminder, which they may keep.
