PLEASE NOTE: this grant scheme is no longer open for applications.

Supporting the local community is important to Jack’s, which is why we’ve created our Jack’s Supports scheme which donates proceeds from the sale of carrier bags to local good causes.

We’re inviting good causes and charity groups to apply to receive a donation from Jack’s Supports.

Four applicants will be shortlisted to be entered into a customer vote in each store. All groups shortlisted will receive a donation of £250, the winner of the in store vote is guaranteed an additional donation of £500.

The Jack’s Supports scheme runs a little differently in the Liverpool area only due to there being three stores within a short distance of each other. If you are shortlisted in the Liverpool area, you must be within a 10 mile radius of either (not all) of the Edge Hill, Liverpool North or Walton stores. If you get to the voting stage, your project will be in all three stores. This means that if you are shortlisted to go to the vote, you will receive an initial payment of £750 and if you then you on to win the vote, you will be awarded a further £1,500.

Please note, the funding is for your organisation to benefit the local community and does not need to be for a specific project.

We’re accepting applications for new groups within ten miles of Jack’s Stores so click the ‘Apply’ button down below to register.
