Award winning Jacobs the Jewellers is delighted to officially share its 70th anniversary celebrations plan

 

Award winning Jacobs the Jewellers is delighted to officially share its 70th anniversary celebrations plan. Entirely in keeping with a family business holding the Reading community at its heart, Jacobs’ 2018 program centres around the ambitious goal of raising £70,000 for the Royal Berkshire Hospital Charity in the 70th anniversary of the founding of the NHS. Throughout the anniversary year, a series of events and initiatives are planned to raise funds for the much-loved local NHS Trust.

Events wise, a team of “Jacobs Jumpers” will charity sky dive in Spring (contact us if you’d like to be involved) , a golf day will be held in late Summer, spaces for Reading Half Marathon Runners and the program will include a gala luxury black tie Dinner in Autumn.  Initiatives running in parallel include every 2018 purchase completed being entered into a prize draw to win a 0.70ct diamond 18ct white gold pendant, worth over £4000. Furthermore, special 70th anniversary raffle tickets will be available to buy in store to win prizes, drawn each quarter. The prizes will be a unique mix from Jacobs own watch, jewellery and gift partners, as well as local businesses – proceeds going to the Royal Berkshire Hospital Charity.

In an innovative final initiative, Jacobs in house designers and goldsmiths will also be designing and making 7 unique jewellery pieces, designed in the style of a specific jewellery design era such as Art Deco or Victoriana. These 7 designs, ranging from £500 to £10,000, will be created and sold during the course of 2018 with a percentage donated towards the charity.
