Anwyl’s anniversary aid to Merseyside children’s hospice

A pledge to donate £90 for every home sold in Anwyl’s 90th anniversary year has seen the homebuilder gift more than £6,000 to a Merseyside based charity.

Buckshaw Village based Anwyl Homes Lancashire has shared its portion of the charity pot between two children’s hospices in its area of operation – Derian House, on Chancery Road, in Astle Village, and Claire House Liverpool, with each receiving £6,625.

In total, the North Wales headquartered Anwyl Homes business has donated £35,250 to charity as a result of its 90th anniversary pledge. In addition to the Lancashire donations, Anwyl gifted £20,000 to the Ty Gobaith & Hope House Children’s Hospices in Shropshire and North Wales and £2,000 was donated to the Neumark Foundation to help fund laptops for school pupils during the Covid pandemic.

Claire House, based in Wirral and Liverpool, cares for around 400 children and families across Merseyside, Cheshire and North Wales, including many of the areas where Anwyl operates. Claire House partnerships manager Hary Boshell said:

Our daycare service at Liverpool provides a range of support, from mums and tots baby groups, all the way up to social groups for young adults. Families are able to either come in as part of some of the groups, or use the day as respite to take a break from what can be a 24 hour job of providing care at home. Anwyl’s generous support means that we can continue to support these families in the area who need us most.

Anwyl’s Lancashire business operates across the county and in parts of Merseyside and Cheshire. The company’s Edenhurst Grange development is less than three miles from Claire House Liverpool, which currently operates as a day centre.

Managing director of Anwyl Homes Lancashire John Grime said:

As a family-run business and in line with our ethos of being a thoughtful homebuilder, supporting Claire House Children’s Hospice was the natural choice to mark our 90th anniversary. It’s difficult to put into words how vital their care and support is for families in this area who are going through such difficult times. We’re proud to be able to support the charity.
