WATCH: This year’s Jam Jar Army recruits

Here are the pictures of those who have backed our Jam Jar Army campaign for The Stephen Carey Fund so far this year.

In February, the Gazette kicked off its fourth Army campaign for another beneficiary from north Northumberland, following the outcome of a reader vote.

The Stephen Carey Fund was set up as a tribute to the 21-year-old grassroots player from Alnmouth who collapsed while playing football and died due to an undiagnosed heart defect. The charity strives to provide defibrillators, first-aid training and first-aid kits for communities in the area to try to prevent similar tragedies from taking place in the future.

The past three Jam Jar Army campaigns have managed to raise more than £40,000 for good causes in the north Northumberland area and this success is due to the support and community spirit of local residents.

This year, we want as many different people, organisations and businesses to support the campaign and its cause as possible and as we are a 21st-century campaign, we want to use social media to show how many recruits the Army is getting and how much backing there is out there for The Stephen Carey Fund.

As our slideshow demonstrates, we want people to get a photo of themselves with their jam jar and then share it via Twitter. Tweet your photo to The Stephen Carey Fund (@1StephenCarey), Northumberland Gazette (@alnwickgazette) and the Jam Jar Army (@jamjararmy) and use the hashtag #jamjararmy.

For Facebook fans, you can also publish your photo to the Stephen Carey Fund page and the Gazette’s page.
