CREWE community groups are being urged to apply for financial support or practical help from a house builder.

Anwyl Homes is offering £5,000 under the umbrella of ‘Love From Anwyl’ to the community near to its Alexandra Gardens development.

Sales Director Graeme Gibb explained the community funding pot: “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 Crewe through the Love From Anwyl initiative.

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

The cash 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.

Anwyl recently donated to two Cheshire Foodbanks including Middlewich Food Bank and West Cheshire Food Bank. Pictured (front right) Anwyl sales manager Sophie Jones, with food bank volunteers.

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,” added the sales director.

“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 249 new homes being built at the estate on Sydney Road. It’s in addition to local investment agreed during the planning process.

The deadline for submissions for the first wave of applications is August 31.
