Gibsons spreads charitable festive cheer

Published on: 20th December 2018

The independent jigsaw puzzle and board games company is a proud supporter of the children’s charity, Jigsaw4U.

This year, the team have personally purchased gifts for many of the children who receive support from the Southwest London-based charity.

Jigsaw4U is based in Mitcham, Surrey, and supports children who have been affected by significant social, emotional and bereavement issues, such as domestic violence, grief or homelessness. Gibsons proudly sponsors the local charity through regular fund-raising events and donations, which included a team triathlon earlier this year.

The Gibsons team each purchased a personal gift for many of the children and families who are supported by Jigsaw4U. The gifts included arts and crafts, games, books, vouchers and even a spider-man scooter. The gifts were donated to Jigsaw4U on the Wednesday 12th December.

Anne Meech, office manager at Gibsons, commented: “We were delighted to support the children at Jigsaw4U once again this year, as every child deserves a gift at Christmas. Jigsaw4U has a fabulous, hard-working team which does a tremendous job all year round. We hope that our gifts bring some smiles to the children this Christmas.”

Jenny Harwood from Jigsaw4U added: “We were so thrilled that the team at Gibsons wanted to buy gifts for our children and young people again this year. It really is wonderful that the gifts are from people who work locally to these young people, and that they care and want to make a difference. From everyone at Jigsaw4u, thank you Gibsons.”
