Jacobs has been a part of Reading for almost 75 years and we have strong roots in the community. 

We're proud to be supporting the Royal Berks Charity once more in being principal business partner to raise £44,000 to buy 44 reclining chairs for the paediatric ward. These would replace ageing and uncomfortable camp beds that parents currently use when staying overnight with their children. Read more via the Charity, here. So far we've helped raise £29,500+ towards the appeal (June 23rd 2022) - 29/44 chairs!

 Chair share

A minimum £250 donation entitles you a quarter share of a chair - a side, a back, a seat or the other side - and each donor will have their name displayed in the ward their chair sits in. £1000 buys you the whole chair! Why not share a chair between friends + family? You can learn more and make your donation here.

Historic fundraisers

We've raised money for local charities each year and have supported Launchpad in Reading, Thames Valley Air Ambulance, The Royal Families and Guide Dogs for the Blind in recent years. 

In 2018, our 70th anniversary year, we ran a specific range of events called Seventy for Seventy, and raised over £93,500 for the Berkshire Cancer Centre, you can read about it here.

We are also committed to developing Reading as a place to live, work and play, with Adam Jacobs as Chairman of  Reading UK CIC. He also sits on the National Association of Jewellers national committee as Vice Chair. Our roles in the wider Berkshire + jewellery communities are something we cherish and nurture.
