Hello and welcome to Lincolnshire Rural Challenge our newly registered charity (charity number 1183281).   We are a group of 7 trustees who have come together due to our desire to support an often forgotten and isolated group of young people in our rural community.  Our hopes for Lincolnshire Rural Challenge are that we will be able to make at least a small positive difference in the lives of the people we work alongside.  

We will be working with

Our grant funding will favour initiatives which will help young people who fall into the above categories.

What we can offer

All with  the aim of leading to improved chances of employment and further learning and training.   We hope to be flexible with what we can offer and will be open to the needs of each individual that approaches us for support.

Some of our current projects (all have been put on hold due to the pandemic)

Fund Raising past and future

The Lincolnshire Rural Challenge, has been holding a now well regarded and popular event over previous years, The Lincs Box Event.  This has been our main source of income so far.   A 10k and 5k Cross Country Run/walk and a 50k Mountain Bike Trail.    This years Box Event will be offering even more exciting trails and experiences so watch this space!

This is all new and just the beginning for us, we’ve been holding the BOx Event for four years now with this particular vision in mind.   Now as a registered charity we plan to establish further funding streams through grant funding and donations.  There will be a donation page in the coming weeks on this site.  

We are always very happy to talk to anyone who may have an interest in supporting our charity or who may wish to offer sponsorship for any of our fund raising events/activities.

“The young people we are aiming to support are our passion, we believe they have so much to offer, but maybe just need a leg up to get them on their way.   We are excited and grateful to anticipate being a  part of their journey.”
