In the run up to Christmas last year, we were approached by a company based on the Willow Lane industrial estate in Mitcham who wanted to donate Christmas presents to the families living temporarily in Connect House. Set Square Staging donated £3,000 from which Jigsaw4u staff bought children’s toys, games, adult toiletries and food gift sets for the families. Staff at Close Brothers Group in Wimbledon bought 50 gifts which were also donated.
We worked alongside Assetgrove who manage Connect House and were able to invite residents to come and choose some presents one afternoon. We decorated the Assetgrove office like a Santa’s grotto and the Rotary Club of Morden sent along their very own Father Christmas to help give out the presents.
The event was a great success with many of the families sharing they were extremely touched by the kindness of everyone involved.
Huge thanks to Set Square Staging, Assetgrove, Rotary of Morden, Boots in Colliers Wood and all the Jigsaw4u staff and volunteers.
