Ten Years of Champion Bowland

Champion Bowland

At the present time fundraising is uncertain due to the Covid-19 emergency. The businesses who usually help us with fundraising are no loger able to do so. So we are unable to offer our small grants for the time being. We shall keep you posted.

 

Champion Bowland provides easily accessible small grants for local projects which benefit the environment, local communities and visitors within the Forest of Bowland AONB. Champion Bowland raises funds from visitor donations, charitable activities and other sources. We are proud of introducing individuals and groups to the unique landscape and culture of the Forest of Bowland through school visits or funding Trampers (off-road mobility scooters).

Champion Bowland Small Grants scheme At the present time [March 2020] fund raising is uncertain due to the repercussions of the Covid 19 emergency. Many of those Bowland tourism businesses who help to collect donations for us are unable to open as usual; some have closed down completely. So we are not able to offer our Small Grants [maximum £750] for the time being. We hope that within a few months we shall be able to resume our normal scheme.
