The launch of ‘Our Town’ in association with Dementia UK
Alongside our competition, we’re also launching a special puzzle, ‘Our Town’. We’ve created this intricate and surreal design to help raise money for Dementia UK, a charity that’s very important to us.
For every ‘Our Town’ puzzle we sell, we’ll donate 10% of the proceeds to Dementia UK. We’ve chosen to support this cause because research has suggested that jigsaw puzzles can be a great way to fight off early onset dementia.
Mental fitness is just as important as physical fitness, but as it’s not so clearly visible, it can sometimes be forgotten. The charity recommends that everyone undertakes mental exercise around three to four times a week.
Completing a jigsaw puzzle is great exercise for the brain – it’s a huge mental task to reassemble an image from tens, hundreds, or thousands of pieces.
What’s great about jigsaw puzzles is that there’s a huge range when it comes to difficulty, so puzzles can be a good mental challenge for all abilities.
There are several other ways that completing a jigsaw can help people with early onset dementia. For instance, piecing together a puzzle can improve hand-eye coordination, and if you complete a puzzle with a friend or relative, this can help to maintain communication skills.
What is International Puzzle Day?
International Puzzle Day was created by American game companies in 1995 and is celebrated on the 29th January every year.
It’s a day to remind us all that a puzzle – whether it’s Sudoku, a crossword or a jigsaw – is great exercise for the brain. The day is designed to encourage people to step away from digital entertainment, and celebrate the timeless challenge of a puzzle.
Be sure to test your problem-solving skills this International Puzzle Day with a tricky jigsaw puzzle!
