Anniversary Year


To celebrate our 40th Anniversary Year the Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust  supported charities with over £400,000 of extra funding.

Throughout 2023, the Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust (JSAWT) gave £300k extra in awards to many of the charities it has supported regularly over the last 40 years. Please look at our 40th Anniversary Testimonials to see what support from us has meant to them.

In addition, JSAWT invited a small number of charities it had previously supported to apply for four Special project awards of £25,000 each. Thirty charities responded, with proposals ranging from kennel rebuilds, to solar panel installations, replacement vans and a new x-ray machine.

In May 2023 JSAWT was delighted to announce the recipients of the Special Awards:

Trustees are confident the projects proposed by these winners will have a significant impact on both the way in which the charities operate and the welfare of animals under their care.
