Staff at a Yorkshire housebuilder have been doing all they can to raise much needed funds for one Yorkshire charity that is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
Miller Homes has already raised £7000 for Wakefield Hospice, a charity that offers symptom management and care for people who have advanced active, progressing and life-threatening illness across Yorkshire.
Even though the team at Miller Homes has been working from home for much of the year, they have rallied round to do what they can. The latest event saw twelve members of the team take part in the Tough Mudder Challenge at Skipton.
“Wakefield Hospice is a charity close to our hearts and we are delighted to have them as our chosen charity for the Yorkshire region in 2021, especially poignant given that it thirty years since it was established,” said Paul Moore, Managing Director, Miller Homes Yorkshire. “Being away from the office has thwarted some of our plans however, we are now working hard to organise more events towards the end of the year when we are able to be together at head office to raise even more for the charity.”
In addition to Tough Mudder, the team also took part in the national Miller Homes fundraising campaign, March for March, which saw staff walk every day to meet step targets and gather sponsorship for doing so.
Tony Haigh, SHE Manager, Miller Homes Yorkshire and Tough Mudder coordinator commented; “Taking part in Tough Mudder was particularly enjoyable this year as it was the first time some members of the team have been together for 18 months. Once again, our team spirit and camaraderie was second to none and we are thrilled to have raised such a fantastic amount for this inspirational local charity.”
Miller Homes has developments in Apperley Bridge, Drighlington, Boroughbridge, Bramhope, Thorpe Willoughby and Wakefield.
