Readers of this blog will know that I am a big fan of Eve, my friend now in her 90s, who is tackling getting older with considerable aplomb.
This week I learnt of her latest project. Eve was speaking to a friend who runs a charity shop which had a great many donated jigsaws. Whilst the jigsaws were popular, the volunteers simply did not have time to check that all the pieces of each puzzle were in the box so the jigsaws often languished in the stock room.
Up steps Eve who suggests that she could get together a group of friends who would happily check and complete the jigsaws so as to enable them to be sold. And so the Jigsaw Club was born.
Once a week Eve and her friends get together over a cup of tea and do jigsaws – not only does it help the charity, the activity, as Eve says “keeps both brain and fingers moving”.
What a lovely idea – and a win, win for everyone involved.
