With thanks to Players of People’s Postcode Lottery, groups can apply for grant funding of up to £2,500 if they:

- are helping rural or farming communities to cope with the Coronavirus pandemic
£100,000 total is available in this first round of funding. The Fund will assist projects that support farm businesses or other rural businesses and rural communities. This may include, but is not limited to, volunteer and fuel costs for grocery and prescription delivery from rural community shops, pubs, and hubs; costs associated with emergency support by farm and agricultural support groups; or rural foodbanks and food delivery services.
