Local Cranleigh charity receives £1,000 grant from Signify

A charity that provides educational, vocational and wellbeing services for people with autism has received a grant of more than £1,000 from a Guildford-based lighting company.

Jigsaw Trust, in Cranleigh in Surrey, was granted a donation of £1,023.16 from Signify to help buy equipment and to keep running its programmes that promote life skills and social inclusion for people with complex autism.

Robin Legge, head of fundraising at Jigsaw Trust, said: “This amazing donation from Signify will make such a difference to our children and adult learners.

“It has been a disruptive time for the people we support, many of whom struggle with change, so it is vital that we continue our services to offer a sense of stability for vulnerable people and their families.

“It is wonderful to have Signify’s support and we’re looking forward to working with them on more exciting activities that will change lives.”

Bren Lumsden, head of HR at Signify UKI, said: “We are proud to be working with local charities such as Jigsaw Trust.

“We have a clear purpose to unlock the extraordinary potential of light for brighter lives and a better world. Working with Jigsaw and their dedicated team is a key part of this strategy. We look forward to building our partnership with them across 2020 and beyond.”
