A new year often brings hope for so many of us, the air is charged with possibilities! Setting meaningful goals for the year can be such a positive way to provide you with direction, but sometimes achieving them and staying on track can be tricky, especially if you’re short on time.
Perhaps your goal is to support others in your local community, try a new hobby, get organised at home, take on a physical challenge, read a book every month or even bake more. Whatever your aspirations are for 2024, putting a fundraising spin on them can help you to stay focused and accountable!
Short on time? You can still support your local community!
In the UK, people spend an average of 2 hours per day on social media – we would love it if you could take a minute to follow, like and share our posts. Even if just one person clicks through and finds out about us, it will make a difference. Follow us @jigsawsoutheast all platforms.
Spread the word
Mention Jigsaw to your HR department, pastoral team or welfare officer. If they hear of someone facing a terminal illness or of a death of someone who has children, then they can signpost that family to us for support, direct them here for more information.
Suggest us as the charity of choice for 2024 in your workplace, school or sports club every penny raised helps us to provide the support services locally.
