Story Bridge and Victoria Bridge Light Up for Jigsaw's 40th Bday
Close to fifty people gathered at Kangaroo Point on Sunday (17 July) to watch the Story Bridge light up in celebration of Jigsaw's 40th anniversary and to enjoy a late afternoon barbeque and socialising on the banks of the Brisbane River. Further upstream, Victoria Bridge also lit up in Jigsaw's logo colours and shone across South Bank Parklands, raising awareness of the organisations support services for anyone affected by adoption.
Adding an adventurous element to the event, thirteen climbers scaled the bridge as partygoers watched on. All agreed that it was an exhilarating way to reflect on their own experiences, Jigsaw's role in their adoption story and to celebrate the organisation's anniversary.
Thank you to all who who came to share in the celebrations, to Lois Buch for organising the light up and Brisbane City Council for giving us the opportunity to raise awareness of Jigsaw's services. Also, many thanks to Susan Kelly and everyone who helped pull the event together and a special thank you to Brisbane photographer, Marcus Bell from Studio Impressions who took some incredible photos of the Story Bridge for us.
