November 10th 2023

In 2023 we turn 75! 🥳

We've always had close links with the community we serve and this bedrock commitment remains honoured. Incredibly, over the last decade Jacobs has already helped fundraise £136,000 for their charity partner: local NHS Foundation Trust, The Royal Berks Charity.

 In 2023, Jacobs hope to fundraise a further £39,000 to make that total £175,000 to mark their 75thanniversary. Their attention will be focused on the cardiac unit, to fund a refurbishment of the cardiac outpatient department.

Adam Jacobs, partner said “Along with my parents Ian and Adrienne, we’re absolutely thrilled to be celebrating this landmark anniversary. As one of the longest standing independent retailers and family businesses in the area, it’s so important to us that we help our local hospital who have looked after not just our families for over 4 generations, but those of our team and customers. We can’t wait to get going!”

 Our program will include our now famous Spring Social drinks party at the Purple Turtle, a year round in store raffle and an innovative series of “evening with” events.

An Evening With....

These VIP ticketed events with only 28 guests feature a celebrity from either the jewellery world or local Reading community, speaking to attendees about their lives and careers along with a Q&A session. This will be hosted in Reading’s luxury boutique hotel, The Roseate.

A pair of tickets to one of our evenings could be an ideal gift.

Your evening includes:

  • Drinks reception in library
  • Presentation with questions + answers in private cinema room
  • 3 course luxury dinner with wine in the Eden suite private dining room
