Supporting the local community is important to Jack’s. That’s why we’ve created the Jack’s Supports scheme, donating proceeds from the sale of carrier bags to local good causes chosen by local communities.
Once applications are submitted they will be reviewed by the local store who will create a shortlist of four good causes. Each of the four shortlisted good causes will receive a donation of £250.
Voting for the winning good cause then begins in store. The winner will receive carrier bag proceeds from their local store for a three month period, which will be a guaranteed minimum 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.
Jack’s Supports is being administered by Groundwork – a national community charity with experience of supporting groups to create better places where they live.
