Jigsaw challenges for clients of Guinness Care

To help ease the boredom during lockdown a member of staff from Guinness Care has come up with a brilliant idea to keep residents in Exeter, Tiverton and Willand, entertained.

After getting a positive response from the clients, carer Chloe asked the local community, via Facebook, if they had any old jigsaw puzzles they would like to donate and she received 30 in the first week.  More followed and now she has over 100 puzzles taking over her spare room and car boot!

Andrew George from Exeter said: “It’s been fantastic having these puzzles to do, especially in the evenings. I find them relaxing.”
