Brighouse Jigsaw Festival 2018
6th September 2018
The seventh annual Charity Jigsaw Festival was held at St. Martin's Parish Church, Brighouse over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
Some 900 people visited the Festival from all parts of Yorkshire with others traveling from places as far apart as Scotland, Lancaster, Leamington Spa and Cirencester.
With visitor numbers 18% up on last year, sales of jigsaws recorded a similar increase and 835, including those donated by Gibsons, were sold.
Visitors were generous in their spending on the Raffle, Tombola, Golden Jigsaw, Jams, Preserves and other crafts and Handmade Cards. The Missing Piece Cafe was busy throughout the weekend serving Breakfasts, Lunches, Afternoon Teas and Cream Teas.
The Surplus from the event exceeds £14,000, bringing the total raised from all seven festivals to date to over £66,000.
The fund will be donated to four charities: Together for Looked-after Children, Yorkshire Children's Trust, Water for Life in Tanzania and St. Martin's Mission to children in the community.
The organiseers at Brighouse want to say a huge thank you for supporting the Festival and the next Charity Jigsaw Festival in Brighouse will be held over the August Bank Holiday weekend 2019.
