Buy A Brick for new JigsawPlus centre

JigsawPlus has launched a fun Buy-A-Brick approach to raising funds for the new Centre for Lifelong Learning for adults with autism, offering brick keyrings and other goodies for different levels of donation.

More than £370,000 has been raised for the £561,000 project, enabling the 11,500-square-feet building to be completed and have a first fit. It will replace the current temporary accommodation and enable JigsawPlus to extend its services to 40 clients. A project update was presented to Jigsaw parents and supporters last month at an event attended by the Mayors of Waverley and Guildford.

The Buy-A-Brick scheme is part of the campaign to raise the rest of the funding needed to complete the fitting-out and furnishing ready for a full opening early next year.

Donations made at different levels via Justgiving will qualify for gifts and other recognition:

  • £1-£24 (Apprentice): a big thank-you for your donation!
  • £25+ (Tradesman): a colourful brick keyring
  • £100+ (Foreman): keyring and a customisable jigsaw piece that will be displayed in reception
  • £500+ (Inspector): keyring, jigsaw piece, certificate of appreciation and hand-made thank-you card from our clients
  • £1,000+ (Architect): all the above and an invitation to a champagne reception at the opening of the new centre.

Further information and a brochure on the new centre are on the JigsawPlus website. Alternatively we would be pleased to hear from you via [email protected]
