During 2016 Miller Homes partnered with Habitat for Humanity GB (HfHGB) to support the global development charity’s Hope Builders campaign.
Building on the shared ethos between the two organisations – the importance for all families, no matter where they are in the world, of having a safe, decent place to call home – the Miller Homes team used their experience, resources, enthusiasm and determination to make a real difference to those who need it most.
Miller Homes put its commitment into action, with teams up and down the country organising various fundraising events and activities and raising over £220,000 for the campaign – more than double the initial target of raising £100,000 in 12 months.
Supporting the campaign was a real team effort and about much more than just fundraising, with Miller Homes also sponsoring 16 members of staff to take part in a Global Village volunteer trip to Malawi to build new homes alongside beneficiary families and directly witness the impact of their support.
Miller Homes’ support for the Hope Builders Campaign has not only provided important practical and financial support for HfHGB but also delivered tremendous business benefits for the housebuilder through its positive impact on employee engagement.
