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 raised £9,000 towards the appeal (November 12th 2021).

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 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. Our roles in the wider Berkshire + jewellery communities are something we cherish and nurture.
