With six weeks to go until the Jigsaw Run on 30th November entries are starting to come in thick and fast as serious and fun runners prepare for one of the last major 10k and mile events of the year – and probably the fastest. New features this year include the opening of the Café on the Park, one of Jigsaw’s social enterprises, which provides work experience opportunities to clients attending our adult service, Jigsaw+, and to our sixth form pupils at Jigsaw School. Race headquarters will be here – and drinks and hot and cold food will be on sale. Details are at http://www.jigsawrun.co.uk. And if you are interested in joining our team of volunteers on the day, please email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Ripley Court raises £2200 for software for Jigsaw

Ripley Court raises £2200 for software for Jigsaw

October 08th 2014

A fantastic fundraising effort by our great friends at Ripley Court School near Guildford has raised over £2,200 to help buy animation software that enables children to bring their imagination to life by creating short cartoon clips. Ripley Court raised the money through a fancy dress sponsored walk, and pupils from year 7 (aged 11-12) visited Jigsaw to present the cheque, which will greatly benefit the children’s education.
