Launch of Community Green Legacy Fund

The Ralph Brocklehurst Legacy Fund set up to help groups and communities

We are very proud to announce the launch of the Ralph Brocklehurst Legacy Fund set up to help groups and communities wanting to improve gardens and green spaces in their local neighbourhood.

The Fund is named to remember and celebrate the life of Ralph Brocklehurst, a key part of the PJ Livesey story over three decades, and passionate gardener who sadly died from cancer in 2022.

Managing director, Georgina Lynch, said: “Ralph had a great love of buildings and gardens and we wanted to honour his memory by helping local communities create or improve their own gardens or green spaces, creating places that people can enjoy.

“Ralph understood the restorative power of plants and gardens and having places, be they large or small, where you can connect with nature is hugely important.

“We always want to enhance the communities where we develop and this is a way to support the work being done by people to improve their local environment.”

Community groups, schools and other organisations within five miles of our on-going developments can apply for a grant of up to £1,000 and the money can be used to purchase tools, plants or to buy professional support.

Applications detailing the project and what the monies will be used for can be made throughout the year and will be awarded twice a year, in March and September.

Georgina added: “We know the power of a community and cannot wait to hear about projects either on-going or that need help to get started and to help them flourish and grow.”
