Riverside Recruitment are launching our Christmas Toy Appeal this December in support of Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice.

We have decided this year to forgo our usual Secret Santa and instead throw our full effort behind gathering presents and raising money for Jigsaw, Cumbria's Children's Hospice. Last year we raised £131 between us with our Christmas Jumper Day for the Jigsaw Appeal and we are looking to grow from this, inviting members of the public to get involved and help us give the children at Jigsaw Children’s Hospice the magical Christmas they deserve.

We will also be running a series of events over the course of the month including a Festive Fun Day, Christmas Bake Sale and a Christmas Feast to raise money for the appeal.

We will be gathering toys and donations at our office on Warwick Road and welcome any support you can offer, no matter how big or small.


“Jigsaw is Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice. We provide support to children and young adults with life limiting conditions throughout the county.
The children’s hospice provides one to one care for children and young adults with life limiting illnesses, as well as extending the care and support to their families. Jigsaw’s home-from-home environment allows the nurses to match the children and young adults home routine as closely as possible, ensuring a smooth, relaxing and peaceful transition between the home and hospice environments.”


If you would like to donate a toy or make a donation to Jigsaw this Christmas simply call into Riverside Recruitment or email genevra.smith@riversiderecruitment.co.uk for more details.
