“From our first meeting with the team at BoxyMo it was clear they shared our excitement about the potential our Giro D’Jigsaw cycle has to raise funds so that Jigsaw can continue to support young people’s mental health. This partnership makes sense: Jigsaw is the national centre for youth mental health in Ireland and BoxyMo is primarily concerned with providing a service specifically for young people.”

“This is such a fantastic partnership for BoxyMo. We absolutely love the work that Jigsaw does to support young people’s mental health across Ireland and we are so impressed by the Giro D’Jigsaw cycle.
