Published on: 19th December 2019

Gibsons also gifted Christmas hampers filled with its Little Gibsons pre-school range to children’s charities based around the UK.

Staff at Gibsons have provided gifts to local children in support of the company’s charity partner Jigsaw4U, and it has gifted £10,000 of jigsaw puzzles to the Royal Marsden and Mind, the mental health charity.

Ellie Seagrave, volunteer & community fundraising assistant at The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity said: “We’d like say a huge thank you to everyone at Gibsons for their kind donation. We give each of our patients gifts on Christmas day and this is only possible thanks to the support of businesses like yours. Our patients will be grateful to know you’re thinking of them at this special time of year.”

Gibsons also gifted Christmas hampers filled with its Little Gibsons pre-school range to several children’s charities based around the UK, including Happy Days and Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.

“We are always on the lookout for ways that we can enhance the lives of those in our community. Our team really enjoy going out to buy something directly benefitting local children and we are delighted this year to offer our support again to The Royal Marsden and for the first time Mind,” states Gibsons managing director, Kate Gibson. “Puzzles are great for keeping the mind occupied. They can also be an extremely therapeutic and relaxing pastime which is beneficial for those suffering mental or physical health problems.”

According to Mind, approximately one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year and in England, one in six people report experiencing a common mental health problem in any given week.
