Gift to Handforth Community, Love from Anwyl

HANDFORTH 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 development The Fairways to offer £5,000 via its ‘Love From Anwyl’ community 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 Handforth through the Love From Anwyl initiative.”

“We’re aware that a lot of good causes have had their fundraising impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic and we want to know how we can help.”

The cash will be released through a series of grants. 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 or the donation of materials and resources.

“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 224 new homes being built at The Fairways on Meriton Road. It’s in addition to local investment agreed during the planning process. Anwyl’s new sales centre and show homes are now open on-site.
