JACK's £100k Advertising Fund


It's a strange old time - so JACK wants to do its bit to help out local businesses.

We’ve got £100k’s worth of advertising up for grabs that we want to share out.

If you’re a local company who’s changed up your day to day to produce a positive local impact, we want to hear from you.

If you're a local charity who might be experiencing a reduced level of income then we also want to hear from you.

We’ll shout about your company to all of Oxfordshire. It's just our way of saying thanks to those going that extra mile.

Winning applicants will be awarded advertising grants of £10,000, £5,000 or £2,500 to use on JACKfm, JACK 2 and JACK 3 this June.
