The Chairman of the Caravan and Motorhome Club, David Turner, has confirmed that his nominated charity for 2024 will be The Royal Countryside Fund.
Championing and helping its members get more from the great outdoors, whether glamping or touring, the Caravan and Motorhome Club represents the interests of over 1.1 million caravan, motorhome, campervan and trailer tent owners across the UK. It also supports The Royal Countryside Fund as one of our corporate partners to help us provide farming families with tailored support and practical guidance and empower rural communities to help build a real future for rural Britain.
David Turner, Chairman of the Caravan and Motorhome Club, said, “It is my great privilege to confirm that The Royal Countryside Fund will be my nominated charity for 2024. The Chairman’s annual nominated charity is a way of bringing focus to our 1.1m members about a particular cause. Fundraising will take place across Club campsites and Club events such as ClubFest, our event at the end of May.”
Nick Lomas, Director General of the Caravan and Motorhome Club, said “Ensuring Britain’s beautiful and thriving countryside is secure for generations to come is deeply important to Club members. The Royal Countryside Fund has achieved so much and provided grant funding and farm resilience programmes across the UK for a number of years – but there are still thousands of farmers and rural dwellers who need help and support to ensure the longevity of the countryside and its accessibility for all. With thousands of Club camping locations and Certificated Location owners across the UK, the Caravan and Motorhome Club has proudly supported the Fund since 2016 to play its part to ensure the countryside is supported and enable our members to enjoy the great outdoors.”
Keith Halstead, Executive Director of The Royal Countryside Fund said: “I am delighted that The Royal Countryside Fund has been named the Caravan and Motorhome Club’s Charity of the Year. The RCF firmly believes in creating a sustainable future for rural Britain and this partnership demonstrates a joint passion for our countryside to thrive. I would like to thank the organisation and its members for their support of our charity.”
