Fellows of the Fund

The first Fellows of The Prince’s Countryside Fund were named in December 2021, recognising the significant contributions made by former trustees and supporters of the PCF.

Named by the board, Fellows will be drawn from previous trustees who have been proactive in their support of the Fund, and from those individuals judged to have made an outstanding contribution to the work of the Fund.

Fellows of the Fund

Mark Allen

Mark was Chair of The Prince’s Rural Action Programme Leadership Team and Chair of The Prince’s Dairy Initiative, which was in itself enormously successful when the dairy sector was going through a major crisis and it was the foundation on which The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme was built.

Mark became a Trustee of the PCF in 2010, securing Dairy Crest as a Founding Corporate Partner. Through The Prince’s Dairy Initiative Mark successfully secured the engagement of 18 milk processors and the tremendous industry collaboration that was the driving force of the programme. He subsequently worked tirelessly to engage other corporate partners and was a huge asset to the Fundraising of the charity.

Stephen Dunmore

Stephen was a Trustee of The Prince’s Countryside Fund from 2010 until 2017. Throughout his tenure he was a dedicated Chairman of the Grant subcommittee and led on the charity’s grant giving programme. Stephen kindly agreed to stay on as Chair of the subcommittee following his departure as a member of the Board, until 2021 continuing to provide PCF with his invaluable experience in charitable grant giving.

Stephen’s expertise, wisdom and experience put the charity on a strong footing from the start. 

Mark Pendlington

Mark sat as a Trustee of The Prince’s Countryside Fund from 2015 to December 2018 having previously been a longstanding and dedicated member of The Prince’s Rural Action Programme Leadership Team whilst in his role at Anglian Water. 

Once a member of the PCF Board of Trustees, Mark led on the fundraising strategy in the East of England, securing the offer of a cultivation event at Newmarket Racecourse.

Tireless in his work for the Fund even after leaving the Board of Trustees Mark has continues to build important connections for the Fund in East Anglia and is still hugely helpful and energetic.

Lord Mark Price

Lord Price was instrumental in setting up the PCF with HRH The Prince of Wales in 2010 and put his heart and soul into creating the charity when others had failed before.

Lord Price was the Founding Chairman and led on the development of the cause related marketing model that has been the driving force behind our fundraising. Lord Price personally secured a great number of our founding corporate partnerships, not least securing the relationship with Waitrose that has now lasted over a decade. It was his personal energy and commitment that ensured the PCF’s success.
