We have been spreading the Christmas cheer this December and have provided gifts to local children in support of our charity partner Jigsaw4U, as well as gifting £10,000 of jigsaw puzzles to the Royal Marsden and MIND, the mental health charity.
Ellie Seagrave, Volunteer & Community Fundraising Assistant at The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity states, ‘We’d like say a huge thank you to everyone at Gibsons for their kind donation. We give each of our patient’s gifts on Christmas day and this is only possible thanks to the support of businesses like yours. Our patients will be grateful to know you’re thinking of them at this special time of year.’
We also gifted Christmas hampers filled with our ‘Little Gibsons’ preschool range to 12 children’s charities based around the UK, including Happy Days and Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity.
“We are always on the lookout for ways that we can enhance the lives of those in our community. Our team really enjoy going out to buy something directly benefitting local children and we are delighted this year to offer our support again to The Royal Marsden and for the first time MIND,” states Gibsons Managing Director, Kate Gibson. “Puzzles are great for keeping the mind occupied. They can also be an extremely therapeutic and relaxing pastime which is beneficial for those suffering mental or physical health problems.”
