THE winners of Miller Homes’ 2022 community fund have been announced with 19 projects across east and west Scotland receiving donations to help better their communities.

Created to support local charities, projects, and groups near the firm’s developments, the housebuilder has donated £10,000 to support sports clubs, community halls, foodbanks, mental health charities, and organisations supporting the most vulnerable members in communities.

Food for Thought located in West Dunbartonshire; Paisley Rugby Club; Dynamite Gymnastics Club in Clydebank; Home Start West Lothian; Dunfermline Men’s Shed; and Dementia Friendly in Tranent are just a handful of the projects that were successful in receiving funding.

Since launching in September 2022 there’s been over 400 applications across the UK and 96 local groups have been supported through the initiative.

David McGrath, divisional MD for Miller Homes Scotland, commented, “This heartwarming campaign has given us a great opportunity to speak to groups and causes across our regions and understand what support they need to help improve the work they do. As a homebuilder, community is at the heart of what we do, and it brings us great joy to support these projects and see them develop.”
