Supermarket offers grants to Solihull charities helping residents amid coronavirus

Solihull Editorial 20th May, 2020   0

A SOLIHULL supermarket is distributing grants to charities in the borough.

Jack’s Supermarket, in Castle Bromwich, has opened applications for charities to receive a cash donation.

Castle Bromwich residents can now nominate local charities or non-profit organisations, who are supporting the Covid-19 relief efforts, to receive a grant of £500.

From the nominations four charities will be selected to receive this cash donation to help them to continue to fund their community work.




Jack’s Supports was initially launched to donate proceeds from the sale of carrier bags to local good causes voted for by customers. However, in the current climate, essential workers across the UK have been vital in helping to fight against Covid-19, so the funds have been reallocated to ensure that these donations are going to those directly supporting the relief efforts.

Ryan Bird, Store Manager at Jack’s Castle Bromwich, said: “We launched Jack’s Supports to give something back to the local communities that have supported us since our launch. The money has been greatly beneficial to previous winners, and now we want to give back to those who have selflessly given their time to help the Covid-19 relief.


“If you know of a charity that would benefit from the donation then please apply and nominate. It’s now more important than ever to support these charities and organisations, and everyone at Jack’s is proud to help in any way we can.”

Previous winners from Castle Bromwich include St Thomas Community Project, Marston Green Parish Hall and FITCAP (Fitness in the Community Active Play) who all received £500 from Jack’s to help support their organisation.

To nominate a worthy cause go to jackssupports.org.uk and complete an application form. All entries must involve a charity or non-profit organisation that has been actively helping with coronavirus community relief, and be based in the north of Solihull borough.

All entries must be received by May 27th.
