Four Rubery charities scoop £500 each thanks to Jack's supermarket

Harry Leach 13th Apr, 2021

FOUR charities in Rubery have been awarded £500 each as part of a local supermarket support scheme.

Jack’s, based on New Road, raised the money by donating the proceeds from its carrier bag sales.

The cash will be used to help boost the winning groups’ work within the community.

Winning charities are Baby Aid Birmingham, Tracey’s Dream, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and 93rd St. Stephen’s Guides.

Volunteer Nicky of Baby Aid said: “We are thrilled to receive this grant from the Jack’s Supports Scheme.

“It will go a long way to help support families give their babies the best start in life.

“We will be able to provide newborn baby packs including everything a family will need.”

Usually, the four charities selected would receive £250 each but that amount was doubled as fundraising efforts have been impacted due to the pandemic.

Jack’s store manager Ryan Bird said: “We strongly recommended anyone who’s considering applying for the next round to definitely get involved. We want to support as many local charities as possible, especially during such difficult times.”
