The Next Challenge Expedition Grant is a new bursary set up by adventurer and round the world cyclist Tim Moss (www.thenextchallenge.org) that will be awarded to promising adventurers with new ideas and plans to travel and do something really interesting.
Bamboo Clothing are proud to be one of the backers alongside other outdoor brands including EXPED, Burghaus and Primus. The bursary fund is £1600 which will either be donated in a lump sum or to more than one promising idea. As well as advice the Expedition Grant will provide support and advice from some leading adventurers, a number of whom are part of the BAMbassador team.
BAMbassadors on the advisory panel include Dave Cornthwaite, Richard Harpham and Leon McCarron. The deadline for the initial grant application was 26th August 2015 and the there were a staggering 1363 entries for the judges to review. We hope that this will be an annual fund and help more people embrace their dreams and plans.
We plan to feature the winner(s) of the Next Challenge Expedition Grant in our next edition of BAMLife and a bit of the shared stories and inspiration.
