Our celebrity ambassadors have been busy spreading The Prince’s Countryside Fund message.
Phil Vickery, the first ambassador for the Fund, announced the most recent round of grants in the Sunday Telegraph’s ‘Life’ section and did a whole morning of radio interviews announcing the Fund’s new grants. You can still hear Phil talking to Chris Tarrant on BBC Radio 2 here.
“As a farmer’s son from Cornwall, I know first-hand the very real issues our countryside faces. By supporting the Fund, I hope to highlight these issues, help demonstrate the good work it does and encourage more people and businesses to offer their support. HRH The Prince of Wales has a clear passion for the British countryside and a determination to bring real change. All the projects backed by The Prince’s Countryside Fund help people support their own communities, and make a real difference in rural areas.”
Alex James, the Blur bassist, took part in Channel 4’s The Bank Job, raising £5,000 for the Fund! The episode is still available to watch online.
