As a team effort, staff from Gibsons will collectively cover 26 miles to mark 26 years of Jigsaw4U charity and raise funds in the process.

On 23rd April, the Gibsons team will be running or walking 26 miles to support Jigsaw4u, as the organisation marks its 26th year of service in helping children, young people and families following the onset of complex social and emotional difficulties.

This can range from bereavement, young victims of crime, helping children and young people within the care system, suicide support and much more.

Over the charity’s 26-year history, it has been able to support over 50,000 individuals and provide up to 500,000 one-to-one sessions for its local community.

Jigsaw4U aim is to help its service-users put the pieces back together. They can access the help that they need through one-to-one, family and group work. The charity’s work will make a difference and give its service-users the best chance at a bright and happy future.

Gibsons has been supporting Jigsaw4u for a number of years, with the team coming up with a multitude of creative ways to fund raise and show its support, including Christmas Gift donations, team members taking on challenge events and providing work experience.

Jigsaw4u commented: “Thank you for the support Gibsons Games. It’s much appreciated. We hope that training is going well for you all and we look forward to hearing about how it all goes on the 23rd April. We’re sure that you’ll smash it as you always do.”
