Housebuilder launches community fund

MILLER Homes has revealed plans to donate £20,000 to charities, community groups, and causes linked to its developments in the east and west of Scotland over the next year.

The housebuilder has created a community fund allowing groups to apply for funding to support their projects.

The fund covers all of Miller Homes’ developments in its Scotland east and west regions. Applications for the first round will close on November 11, after which donations between a minimum of £250 and a maximum of £2,000 will be awarded to successful applicants.

Two funding rounds will take place each year in June and November, and applications will be accepted throughout the year.

Each of Miller Homes’ ten regional offices across the UK will have its own £10,000 fund, which combined will contribute £100,000 to community initiatives across the country.

Peter Thomson, MD of Miller Homes Scotland, said, “We are committed to supporting the local communities we build in and are always exploring ways to further support the inspirational groups on our doorsteps. We are looking forward to hearing from organisations, no matter the shape or size, on how we can assist them on carrying out their exceptional work.”
