Holding the Reading community at its heart, Jacobs the Jewellers aims to reach a lofty goal of raising £70,000 for the Royal Berkshire Hospital Charity. The funding will be used to purchase a Surface Guided Radiotherapy Machine for the cancer department. Throughout the year, the Reading jeweller will hold a series of events to raise the funds for the much-loved local NHS trust.


For the second quarter of the year, one of the highlights was a skydiving initiative: On April 22nd, a team of ‘Jacobs Jumpers’ mustered the courage to skydive which helped raise over £8000. More initiatives are running in parallel including every 2018 purchase completed being entered into a prize draw. The lucky winner will receive a 0.70ct diamond on an 18ct white gold pendant worth over £4000.


To help reach the £70,000 target, this award-winning Reading jeweller is also holding a quarterly raffle draw. Prizes will vary from Jacobs own watch, jewellery, gift partners and local businesses. Click here to buy tickets.


The exciting events held by this award winning, Pride of Reading jewellers have encouraged many jewellery aficionados and local businesses to join the cause. As of August 9th 2018, Jacobs the Jeweller was able to raise £20,500 towards the goal.


So, join Jacobs the Jewellers as they continue to surprise the Reading community with exciting celebratory initiatives this month of September.
