We’ve committed to raise £100,000 for international development charity Habitat for Humanity Great Britain's new Hope Builders Campaign. Our funding will go towards the building of over 30 new ‘Habitat Homes’, helping to lift many people out of poverty housing.
We’re the first major housebuilder to pledge our support to the re-launched campaign, which is supported by the Home Builders Federation and aims to give those living in poverty housing a safe, decent place to call home. To kick-start our fundraising, we have donated £30,000 to the campaign.
We recognise the importance for all families, no matter where they are in the world, of having a place to feel safe, secure and to build a future and by supporting this campaign we have a fantastic opportunity to use our resources, enthusiasm and determination to make a real difference to those who need it most.
Throughout the year we will put our commitment into action, by organising a number of fundraising events and activities, giving a member of our team the opportunity to take part in next year’s London Marathon and enabling a team of Miller Homes employees to participate in a Global Village trip. We hope the money we raise will be enough to build over 30 homes and make a real difference to those stuck in the cycle of poverty housing.
Habitat for Humanity’s focus is on shelter and it recognises that home is the cornerstone of hope for those living in poverty. The charity works with established partners in more than 70 countries across the world to offer simple, sustainable solutions by working with the poorest and most vulnerable people to provide the support needed to help them lift themselves out of poverty by building homes and communities and restoring their independence.
The average cost of a Habitat Home is £3,000 and companies are being encouraged to join a story that will unlock the power of home for generations to come.
