107 JACK fm Berkshire gives cash to charity

107 JACK fm Berkshire has given away over £6,000 of cash to worthy causes, thanks to a waste recycling company.

Charities and community groups were encouraged to apply for a share of the cash, all of which was raised from skips hired out by the M Collard Waste Management.

The radio station, which is owned by Reading Football Club’s co-chairman Sir John Madejski and has its studios at the football stadium, had guaranteed at least £5,000 would be awarded to deserving groups. In the end, M Collard Waste Management gave out £6,100.

The cheques were presented by Mick Collard at JACK fm Berkshire’s studios at the Madejski Stadium in Reading on Wednesday 5 October. Guide Dogs For The Blind has received £2,500 with £1,500 being awarded to The Stroke Association. More than 100 applications were received from the arts, sports and schools.

Sue Reynolds, Managing Director of JACK fm BERKSHIRE said, “I’m extremely grateful to Mick Collard and his staff for offering to support these worthy causes in Reading.

“We have a great relationship with Mr Collard and look forward to continuing to help the local community.”
