Building up funds for charity
A housebuilder is well on its way to a Â£100,000 charity fundraising target, thanks to staff in Northumberland.
Miller Homes has pledged to raise the cash this year for international development charity Habitat for Humanity.
And already, £73,000 has been collected.
A significant sum will come from Blyth’s Portland Wynd development, where the cost of time in labour from building a ‘Habitat charity house’, overseen by site manager John Harrison, will be donated.
Miller Homes staff from the region have also taken part in a quiz night, golf day and barbecue, and a charity ball will be held at the Marriott Hotel in Gosforth on October 28.
Two workers are also taking part in a trip to Malawi to create homes for orphans and vulnerable children.
