Speaking about the Partnership, Justin McDermott, Fundraising Manager said, “This is a really wonderful opportunity for us here in Jigsaw.  The team in Uninest have been so enthusiastic about this partnership, it’s awesome. I have no doubt that we will have a very successful year of fundraising for Jigsaw and more importantly we will also support our mission by ensuring everyone in Uninest and their residences become aware of Jigsaw and how we can support their mental health and well-being”.
