  • Land Rover continues its #partnership with The #princescountrysidefund to launch the 2017 rural bursary for rural businesses of the future
  • Now in its fourth year, and open for entries, the bursary has already supported fifteen rural professionals and reinforces the British car manufacturer’s on-going support for the countryside
  • Announced at The Annual Young Farmers convention, the bursary provides five British entrepreneurs with a Land Rover #discoverysport, for a year, as well as all terrain training

Whitley, 26th April 2017: Land Rover has once again shown its support for the British countryside, announcing the launch of its fourth annual bursary in #partnership with The #princescountrysidefund.  The bursary will offer a year-long loan of a Land Rover #discoverysport to the UK’s most enterprising and entrepreneurial young people working in rural Britain.

The applications for The #princescountrysidefund (PCF) Land Rover bursary opened this past weekend at the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs (NFYFC) Annual Convention. Designed to offer those who live and work in the countryside support in developing their careers, the bursary has proven to be a springboard for success for young rural workers for the last three years.

Five winners will be provided with a #discoverysport, known for its capability over a wide variety of terrains and weather conditions, alongside Land Rover off-road and all terrain driver training.

Attending the announcement, a previous winner of the countryside bursary, Lewis Steer, met with this year’s potential applicants to offer advice, following his loan of a vehicle. Since winning the bursary Lewis’ wool businesses have gone from strength to strength. Lily Warne Wool (named after his great great grandmother) is one of the only in the country to carry out the entire wool making process ‘from farm to yarn’ focussing on reconnecting people with British Wool.  Since successfully winning the bursary in 2016, Lewis has used his Land Rover #discoverysport for day-to-day shepherding, moving sheep between rented land and to access other farms and buy wool and skins through the co-operative he has set up. He now supports other local farmers to gain more return from their stock.
