There is less than one month to go until the deadline for The Prince’s Countryside Fund and Forest Holidays Rural Start-Up Fund.

If you have or are embarking on a rural business venture and can demonstrate how your business will, in some manner, support rural communities, promote conservation of the countryside, or support rural sustainability then you are eligible to apply!

Tom Youngs, England rugby player, farmer, and ambassador for The Prince’s Countryside Fund said: “We all know how hard it is to set up a new rural business. The Prince’s Countryside Fund and Forest Holidays’ Rural Start-Up Fund is an excellent opportunity to offer a helping hand to rural entrepreneurs embarking on a new business venture. In addition to financial support, winners will have the opportunity to receive mentoring support from a relevant member of the Forest Holidays team for 12 months. This is a really exciting opportunity, which I am proud to support.”

Applicants must be 18 and over. To find out more and apply, please visit: www.princescountrysidefund.org.uk/StartUpFund.

Applications close at midday on Friday 6 March 2020.
