Community groups and good causes in Whittle-le-Woods, near Chorley, could receive a much-needed boost with the launch of a £2,000 community grants scheme.
We’re offering four grants of £500 each to community groups, charities or other good causes based in, or serving, the area around our new development Sycamore Manorin Whittle-le-Woods.
Sian Pitt, sales director for Lancashire, said:“As we launch our new development in Whittle-le-Woods, we wanted to offer our support to the local community as a part of our commitment to being a good neighbour.
“There are so many great causes, organisations and groups in the Chorley area doing wonderful work to support the community and we want to hear from them about how we can help. Any not-for-profit group can apply for a £500 grant for whatever they need, just by telling us a little about the project and how it benefits those living in and around Whittle-le-Woods.”
We’re now inviting suggestions of how the new community grants can be distributed to help other groups.
“These community grants are designed to support small projects at the heart of local life that can potentially make a big difference. It could be to buy new tables for a community hall, sponsor a sports team or provide outdoor play equipment for a toddler group,”Sian added.
The community grants are in addition to more than £700,000 of contributions we’ve made to the local community around our development in Whittle-le-Woods as part of the planning process. These include funding for affordable housing, play area improvements and community infrastructure.
Located off Mottram Close, our latest venture, Sycamore Manor, features detached three and four-bedroom family homes.
Those wishing to nominate a project for us to consider supporting should email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application form, stating ‘Sycamore Manor Community Grants’ in the subject line. The deadline for completed applications is midnight on December 13, 2021.
