I have volunteered to organise a Jigsaw Festival at Greystones in August 2024 during our summer closure. I know this seems a long way ahead but to make it a success we must start now as it takes some considerable time to organise.
I am taking it over from the current organisers who have held it in Verwood for the last 7 years and who will be retiring after their festival this year. The 2021 and 2022 festivals ran for 4/5 days and raised £5025 and £4580 respectively for their chosen charities. The proceeds from the HCA festival will be for HCA funds.
The festival works by having around 1000 jigsaws already made up on cardboard bases, people then choose the jigsaws they want, take the board, jigsaw and box to the pay desk where it is then boxed up ready for them to pay and take away.
To make this project a success we need several things, firstly the jigsaws, which must be in good condition, need to be donated; secondly, we need corrugated cardboard for the boards; and thirdly, people to make the jigsaws up, which is the fun part and I know lots of people enjoy doing jigsaws.
This is not just for HCA members so if you or anyone you know, (amily, friends, neighbours etc) can help in anyway please contact me. I am happy to collect donations and to deliver the boards and jigsaws to your home and collect again once completed if you live locally. Donated jigsaws can also be taken to Greystones but please label for my attention
