A RUBERY supermarket is celebrating its second anniversary in the village by looking back on what it has done to help the local community.
Jack’s on New Road has donated 13,787 meals to care homes, schools and individuals who needed them and £11,250 has been awarded to Rubery and south Birmingham charities since it opened its doors in October 2018.
The Jack’s Supports Scheme enables customers to vote for the causes they feel are the most deserving.
Since its launch almost 60,000 votes have been cast and 32 organisations supported, including charities, sports clubs, community centres, women’s institutes, festivals and social clubs.
On the lighter side it has also been keeping track of Rubery villagers’ spending habits and the top-selling items in those two years have been bananas, milk and cucumbers.
Louis Chambers, Jack’s Rubery store manager, said: “Since opening our doors in 2018, we have always wanted to be more than just a supermarket.
“While our main priority is to provide top quality produce at great value prices, the local community has always been important to us.
“We are so proud of everything we have done for the Rubery community, and will continue to do so in the years to come.”
