Bourne Community Champions



We launch the search for our 2017 Bourne Community Champion

Now in its fourth year, Bourne Community Champions will once again recognise and support three travel agencies that give back to their local communities.

Launched in 2014, Bourne Community Champions was founded by Bourne Leisure in partnership with Travel Weekly to help the agents and agencies up and down the country who do so much  positive work in their home towns and regions. And now the search begins for the 2017 winner and two runners-up who will receive financial and practical support for their chosen project or events.



The winner will receive:
✯ Assistance from Bourne Leisure’s community support team and members of the Bourne Leisure and Travel Weekly teams for the winning project, in addition to £500 towards costs.
✯ A two-page feature in Travel Weekly about the project.
✯ Tickets for two people to join Bourne Leisure at the glittering Travel Weekly Agent Achievement Awards in July.

Two runners-up will each receive:
✯ £100 towards their chosen project.



WHAT: Agents need to tell us in no more  than 100 words about their chosen project and why they deserve to be named the overall Bourne Community Champion and receive support to help them achieve their aim. No project is too small, so make sure you enter.

How: Entries can be submitted via email to

When: The deadline for entries is Friday, March 31.

The judging panel will include a member of Bourne Leisure’s charity team and Lucy Huxley, Travel Weekly editor-in-chief. The judges’ decision will be final.
