Gift to Knowsley community, love from Anwyl

There’s a fresh chance for the Knowsley community to apply for financial support or practical help gifted under the umbrella of ‘Love From Anwyl’.

The homebuilder has already given its support to Incredible Edible Knowsley and Home-Start Knowsley.

The company is now reaching out to the community near its Edenhurst Grange development at Bowring Park offering to share £3,000 via its community funding pot, rebranded Love From Anwyl.

Sales director for Anwyl Homes Lancashire Matthew Gould 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 back to the people of Knowsley through the Love From Anwyl initiative.

“We’ve already helped support vulnerable families locally with food, toiletries and children’s activity packs and funded pathway improvements at Court Hey Park. We’re also 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 remaining £3,000 in the pot will be released in phases, 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,” Matthew 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 124 new homes being built at Edenhurst Grange. It’s in addition to local investment agreed during the planning process, with the latest round of funding released as Anwyl prepares to launch phase two of the popular development.
