The final piece in our Jigsaw!
Jigsaw furniture social enterprise is delighted to have a new shop at a great spot on the Braunton Road in Barnstaple.
A launch event in October gave Jigsaw staff and volunteers the chance to showcase their new furniture sales showroom, along with the repairs, upholstery and restoration workshop.
A number of those who have played a role in the move to the new site joined them at the ‘for people not profit’ styled business for a celebration buffet. Volunteers proudly showed invited guests including the deputy mayoress of Barnstaple around their new venue.
Jigsaw helps hundreds of people every year to learn new skills and regain their confidence and sense of self worth. Jigsaw is part of Westward Housing Group and is a social enterprise company.
Jigsaw Projects provide safe and supportive environments for vulnerable people where they can develop a sense of purpose and train to progress into work. High quality products and services are available for sale to the public as a result of their hard work.
Westward’s other social enterprise business, Grow@Jigsaw had an information stall about their project which grows plants, fruit and vegetables, and provided salad greens for the buffet.
