BIG JIG GIG

big jig gig t-shirt front & backFUNfORCE along with 231 volunteers completed the world’s largest commercial jigsaw puzzle in the 2016 summer holidays at Stimpsons Piece in Reepham.
The finished jigsaw was then displayed at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital for 4 weeks for all patients and visitors to enjoy.
It then spent one week in St. Michael’s Church in Reepham, then a few months in The Sidings Bar at The Whitwell & Reepham Station and now resides (in full display) in the lounge of Graham Andrew’s home. 

The project started on Sunday 14th August 2016 and was completed some 10 days later.
This included a 3 day visit to The Forum in Norwich where the public were invited to join in
and help assemble the puzzle.

This amazing project brought together so many volunteers from so many places both home and overseas who since have become great friends! There are plans underway for another epic adventure involving an even bigger jigsaw puzzle in the near future. However it is important that this is kept a secret for the time being until finalised. In the mean time we hope “Wildlife” an African Jungle, gives you as much pleasure viewing it as it did constructing it!
