A PROPERTY developer is set to make a difference after pitting their wits against other regions and companies when they take on Habitat for Humanity GB’s Hope Challenge.

A team from Miller Homes, headquartered in Newton-le-Willows, are set to embark of a fundraiser, shelter build and trek to secure their place to travel abroad to build homes for those in need.

This is the second time the company has taken part in the Hope Challenge in support of its corporate charity partner, Habitat for Humanity GB, which works to help eliminate poverty housing and homelessness by giving hope to some of the most vulnerable people in the world. This not only includes providing them with a safe, decent place to call home but creating thriving communities which they can become part of.

Those taking part will be David Bowden, Samuel Warren and Harry Ellis with points awarded for each activity.

The fundraising event to support the vital work of global housing charity, Habitat for Humanity, takes place on the weekend of June 28 to 30 in the Peak District in Derbyshire.

The team – named ‘Best of Luck’ - has to raise £3,000 to participate in the challenge with fundraising well under way.

They also have to supply materials and construct their own shelter where they will sleep for the two nights of the challenge.

Since 2016, Miller Homes has raised more than £300,000 for Habitat for Humanity and built seven Habitat Homes in Malawi, with another trip involving its suppliers taking place in June.

Ian Smith, Manging Director of Miller Homes in the North West, said: “We are extremely proud of our association with Habitat for Humanity and the commitment of our teams to support their fantastic work never ceases to amaze me. They are keen to get involved and determined to make a difference.”
