To celebrate another magnificent summer of sport across the UK, Miller Homes is giving local sports clubs across the country a chance to win £500.
Following on from the success of a pilot initiative run last summer, the leading UK house builder is urging local clubs and organisations within its eight regional areas to enter the competition by collecting an application form from their local Miller Homes development.
To be in with a chance of winning entrants have to say in no more than 200 words why their sports club deserves to win the money, how it will benefit the club and what it will be spent on.
Chris Endsor, Chief Executive of Miller Homes, said: “When it comes to supporting local communities, we are always keen to get involved – particularly if our support will provide opportunities for education, sport or development. Building great communities is at the heart of our ethos, and we believe that initiatives such as our Summer of Sport campaign go a long way towards nurturing these.
“Our judges will be looking for examples of how the sporting clubs in our communities will make the most out of our donation, for details of how it will directly support the learning and fitness for its members and examples of what new equipment they will be able to buy.
“We strongly encourage anyone with an affiliation to a sports team or club to have a go, and wish all entrants the very best of luck.”
Details of the initiative will be distributed at a local level among sports clubs and associations; however community leaders and club managers can also pick up an entry form at any one of Miller Homes’ marketing suites across the country.
Miller Homes operates in the following eight regional areas: North West of England, North East of England, Yorkshire, East Midlands, West Midlands, Southern, Scotland East and Scotland West.
To find your nearest Miller Homes development, please visit the 'locations' section of the Miller Homes website.
The closing date for entries is Sunday 1st September 2013 (Sunday 15th September for Scotland) giving applicants plenty of time to prepare a winning application.
