Following a successful funding application, Jigsaw Bury were invited along to a 'Charity Giving Event' with Box Power on Tuesday 23rd November 2021. The event was hosted at the Brookfield Hall to recognise the hard work of exceptional charities across the North West during a challenging time. At the event it was announced by Box Power that all grants were being DOUBLED! Ellen Smith (Jigsaw Coordinator) & Zoe Oldham (Jigsaw Manager) were therefore delighted to accept an award of £30,000!
Jigsaw feels so privileged to receive support from Box Power and can’t thank them enough for their generosity. The donation of £30,000 will make a phenomenal impact to Jigsaw and benefit the lives of young disabled adults in Bury. 22 charities were awarded grants to help them make an even bigger impact. Ellen and Zoe met with other inspirational charities and showcased Jigsaw’s work and the difference it makes.
The event was full of celebrations, triumph and emotion! Jigsaw is delighted to be supported by Box Power and extremely proud of our hard work!
The event was filmed by BBC News and featured on the 6:30 PM BBC North West News.
