Jigsaw has achieved its target of £590 for a shelter kit for a family made homeless by the recent earthquake in Nepal. Well over £400 was raised by the recent school mufti day, when everyone made a £1 donation and raised more money by buying cakes made by parents and staff and clients of Jigsaw+ adult services. Since then families and friends of Jigsaw have topped up the total to the amount needed for a Shelterbox.

We are so grateful to Hilton Cobham for their continuing terrific support for Jigsaw. We are always looking for work experience opportunities for pupils and Jigsaw+ Adult Services clients: please contact our Fundraising Team on 01483 279674 if your organisation can help in any way.

Jigsaw pupils show their riding skills

Jigsaw pupils show their riding skills

May 14th 2015

Jigsaw pupils’ horse riding skills were put to the test when the school took part for the first time in a regional gymkhana, organised by Riding for the Disabled (RDA). Six pupils had an exciting and challenging day when they were tested on controlling a horse and took part in races involving picking up small items, carrying them to a bucket and weaving back through a line of cones. Huge thanks go to RDA and its many volunteers for funding and organising the event and making it such a success for the children.
