The Countryside Fund, which strives to secure a sustainable future for the British countryside, is looking to invest up to £800,000 in worthwhile rural initiatives in this application round. To date, the charity has given more than £3m in grants in three years to hard-pressed rural communities, directly benefiting more than 52,000 people.
