JPCS, a not-for-profit concert series based in Wimbledon, are aiming to raise £15,000 in a season-long fundraising campaign.

This season they will run further free educational workshops for children, and have secured their first partnership with a local school - Wimbledon High School, where it will be holding workshops and concerts.

In June they aim to launch "Estival!", a free open-air, one-day classical and jazz festival in Wimbledon, the first in a "Jigsaw for Free" Series.

JPCS will also continue to sponsor young up-and-coming jazz and classical ensembles, and subsidise all concert ticket prices, to help ensure music is accessible to all in Merton.
