Jack Bloor was a pioneering climber and fell runner, former chairman of the Yorkshire BMC, helped establish the classic Three Peaks Race with Arthur Dolphin and Des Birch (which he won in 1956), coached orienteers to World Class level, County Mountain Advisor to the Scouts and has many rock climbing first ascents in Yorkshire and the Lake District. 

Following his death in 1984, the trust was established to continue his work in helping those who want to improve their physical and/or technical skills in a recognised outdoor sport. 

The Jack Bloor Fund is available to young people under 26 years who live in Yorkshire and are a member of a Yorkshire Sports Club &/or a National Sport Governing Body. Grants are only awarded for improving physical &/or technical skills in any recognised outdoor sport. Up to 50% of the total cost is available with a maximum of £300. Applications can be made all year round.
