wind-swept isle. But we need your help, your inspiration and the support
of your local community.
Bovril wants you to nominate your favourite spot, whether it’s a
disheveled dry-stone wall, a rickety jetty, a run-down inner-city
playground or a cramped campsite - somewhere that you think deserves a
In return, Bovril’s expert judging panel - headed by a celebrity
judge - will reward the most worthy projects with a share of the Revival
Fund of £100,000.

Johnny Morris, Richard Madden, Adriaane Pielou, Alaistar Good and Lisa
Grainger in action and become inspired to launch your own project.
All you have to do is pick up a promotional jar of Bovril and enter

the best way to fortify the outdoor areas dearest to your heart.
