Gift to Chester Community, Love from Anwyl

Chester community groups can now apply for financial support or practical help gifted under the umbrella of ‘Love From Anwyl’.

The homebuilder is reaching out to the community near its Deva Green development to offer £5,000 via its ‘Love From Anwyl’ funding pot.

Sales director for Anwyl Homes Graeme Gibb explained: “Anwyl is a thoughtful homebuilder and we recognise that we have a part to play in shaping the future of the communities we’re building in. As our way of giving back, we’re gifting £5,000 to the people of Chester through the Love from Anwyl initiative.”

The maximum amount that will be paid out to any one project is £2,000, but Anwyl may choose to make a greater number of smaller contributions to different organisations rather than a single large sum. There’s also the chance to apply for practical support, in the shape of volunteer time.

“We want to share the love as widely as possible by lending our support to as many projects as practical,” Graeme added.

“We’re also keen to be involved in the community on a practical level and are open to suggestions of how we could volunteer our time. We have a range of different professional skills and some hidden talents that could be put to good use to help locally. We’re not afraid of getting our hands dirty, so may be able to help with gardening, painting or minor remedial works. We can offer talks to schools and youth groups, virtually or in person.”

Love From Anwyl is a voluntary scheme attached to the 142 homes Anwyl is building at Deva Green, off Clifton Drive, which will eventually feature a mix of two, three and four-bedroom designs.
