Over the last year, charities and organisations directly supporting the Sheffield community have been invited to apply to the Jack’s Supports Scheme to receive some well-deserved funding.

Since the launch of the initiative, 6,805 votes have been cast and 16 local organisations have been supported, including local charities, sports clubs, community centres, places of worship and social clubs. The total donated so far is £6,250, with much more to come.

Jack’s, part of the Tesco family on Kilner Way, and becoming a key part of the local community, has also addressed the important issue of meal donations. To date, a total of 9,064 meals have been made to local care homes, schools, and individuals in society whose needs are the greatest.
