A charity serving Merton and Sutton is celebrating after a new timber cabin was installed at its Mitcham office.

Staff from Jigsaw4u gathered at its Mill Green Road site on October 31 to open the new cabin which had been recently purchased by Sutton business Watson & Sole.

Jenny Harwood, Jigsaw4u’s business development and fundraising manager said: "For many, many years, it has been a dream of ours to build a therapeutic log cabin on site; a space that would provide a comfortable environment where children can explore their emotions and try to come to terms with their experiences of loss, trauma and family break down.

"Thanks to the generosity of Watson & Sole and local builders, electricians and plumbers, our long standing dream has finally become a reality."

Earlier this year Watson & Sole teamed up with Jigsaw4u as the company’s nominated charity for 2019/2020.

The company's managing director Paul Vermont added: "Like many others charities, Jigsaw4u has seen cuts to its funding budget over recent years and Watson & Sole aims to make a difference by fundraising, raising awareness and practical involvement.

"The Watson & Sole board felt purchasing the cabin was a very tangible benefit with which we could kick off our support.’

"He went on to say "the very important work that Jigsaw4u does with thousands of children, young people and parents every year immediately resonated with our staff when Jenny and Stephen from Jigsaw4u visited us to introduce the charity.

"Since then staff members have been able to enjoy a ‘dress-down Friday’ every week and have also been collecting new household items to help Care Leavers through Jigsaw4u as they start out on their independent lives."
