Matthew Gould, Sales Director at Anwyl Homes Lancashire, said: “The response to Love From Anwyl was fantastic and gave us a real insight into some of the projects right at the heart of the communities we’re building in.
“Originally, we planned to release the funding in phases, but due to the volume of enquiries, the panel had difficult decisions to make and decided to allocate the entire budget so we could help as many good causes as possible.
“In line with our ethos of being a thoughtful homebuilder, we’re also exploring how we can offer some of the applicants practical help too.”

Friends of Conway Park committee member Norman Bilsborough said the group have been working to improve the local park since 2015.
Norman said: “With Anwyl’s help, we’ll be able to complete works to enhance the children’s play area, planting new trees and bulbs to make the area more attractive and blend in with the rest of the park.”
The Love From Anwyl Fund is attached to homes being built at Lawrence Gardens in the semi-rural village of Barton; in Fulwood and Stonebridge Fold, close to Longridge town centre.
