Meet Isobel the Jigsaw – Ensuring every project sparkles

She may be wee, but Isobel is our star tool at the library. And she deserves the praise – not only was she our first ever loan (to a lady whose cat got too fat for it’s catflap), she can boast a serious amount of carbon reduction. Jigsaws are a surprisingly versatile tool that help our members create everything from bookshelves to unicorn-shaped chopping boards. Your donation will keep Isobel in tip-top condition so her and all the projects she creates can sparkle.

Isobel and everyone who uses her [insert stat]. Want to support them in making sure our cats stay safe?
