Leading housebuilder, Miller Homes, is well over the half way mark in achieving its fundraising target of £100,000 for international development charity Habitat for Humanity.

The Miller Homes team has already taken part in a range of fundraising activities since the start of 2016, including the London and Edinburgh marathons, a bike-a-thon with employees cycling the length of the UK, bake sales, race nights and Tough Mudder which have all contributed to over £67,000 being raised so far.

During the second half of the year the Miller Homes team has more fundraising activities planned including charity balls across the country, fitness challenges, golf days and quiz nights which will all go towards achieving the final target.

The company’s North East region is building a ‘Habitat charity house’, a home will be built to Miller Homes high standard by their award winning site team with the costs which would have been paid in labour being added to the company’s fundraising pot.
