£5,000 gifted to Lancashire communities with Love From Anwyl

Sports clubs, schools, a park and families in need across Preston and the surrounding area are among the good causes sharing a £5,000 gift, Love From Anwyl.

The homebuilder, which has its regional headquarters at Buckshaw Village, Chorley, invited applications from the community near to its developments in Fulwood, Barton and Longridge and received requests from across the county.
Sales director at Anwyl Homes Lancashire Matthew Gould said:

The response to Love From Anwyl was fantastic and gave us a real insight into some of the projects right at the heart of the communities we’re building in. Originally we planned to release the funding in phases, but due to the volume of enquiries the panel had difficult decisions to make and decided to allocate all of the budget now so that we could help as many good causes as possible.

In line with our ethos of being a thoughtful homebuilder, we’re also exploring how we can offer some of the applicants practical help too.

The projects to receive support Love From Anwyl are:

  • Friends of Conway Park – bulb and tree planting
  • St Mary’s & St Andrew’s Catholic Primary School – playground improvements
  • Barton Bowling Club – stand refurbishment
  • Barnacre Road Primary School & Nursery – pathway works
  • Barton St Lawrence Parent, Teacher & Friend Association – improvements to outdoor provision
  • City of Preston Triathlon Club – stationary bike
  • NCT Preston – baby bundles for families in need

Friends of Conway Park committee member Norman Bilsborough said:

We’ve been working to improve our local park since 2015. With Anwyl’s help we’ll be able to complete works to enhance the children’s play area, planting new trees and blubs to make the area more attractive and blend in with the rest of the park.

The Love From Anwyl Fund is attached to homes being built at Lawrence Gardens in the semi-rural village of Barton; in Fulwood and Stonebridge Fold, close to Longridge town centre. It’s a voluntary scheme, being offered in addition to local investment agreed during the planning process.
