A festival of jigsaw puzzles

A THREE day festival held last year, when over 500 completed jigsaws were collected with scores on display, is being repeated this year.

Irene Johnson and Irene Bromilow first had the idea to stage a Jigsaw Festival to raise monies for charity and their local church, and with Sue Kadodwala they formed a committee to raise money for Breast Cancer Research and St Rocco’s Hospice.

Volunteers were enlisted to both donate and complete jigsaw puzzles of all varieties. The event raised a fantastic £3,219 in total split between the three.

A further Jigsaw Festival is being held on May 26 and 27 at Newchurch Parish Hall, Culcheth.

Anyone wishing to be involved should contact a member of the committee: Irene Johnson (01925 733748); Irene Bromilow (01925 763126); Sue Kadodwala (01925 765652).
