Miller Homes, one of the UK's leading homebuilders, is proud to announce that it has raised an impressive sum of nearly £30,000 during 2023 for its nominated charity, Dementia UK.
The company's commitment to supporting this vital cause has been unwavering, and the funds were raised through a variety of creative and inspiring initiatives throughout the year.
Most recently, Miller Homes hosted a ‘Peaky Blinders Charity Ball' to raise further funds for Dementia UK. Held at the prestigious Titanic Hotel in Liverpool, the event was a grand affair that saw attendees immerse themselves in the glamour of the 1920s. The ball raised over £18,000, with contributions derived from ticket sales, games, auctions, and raffles, all in the name of a great cause.
Another of the standout fundraising efforts was the remarkable achievement which consisted of a team of 18 people across all departments of Miller Homes North West, who took on the formidable ‘Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge’, embarking on a demanding 24-mile loop with a total ascent of 5200ft.
Miller Homes' commitment to Dementia UK extended beyond fundraising events. The homebuilder was privileged to welcome an Admiral Nurse into their offices to shed light on the vital work carried out by the charity. This informative session not only raised awareness about Dementia UK but also offered valuable advice on recognising the early stages of dementia in family members and how to cope with the challenges it presents.
In total, Miller Homes' combined fundraising efforts resulted in a generous donation of almost £30,000 to Dementia UK. This contribution will go a long way in supporting the organisation's commendable work, including aiding Admiral nurses and various other functions vital to the charity's mission.
David Brackley, regional operations director at Miller Homes, expressed his pride in the company's charitable achievements, saying: "We are delighted to have raised such a significant amount for Dementia UK this year. It reflects the dedication and generosity of our team and the partners we work with. Dementia is an issue that affects so many lives, and we are committed to supporting the invaluable work of Dementia UK."
Dementia UK is a charity that provides specialist dementia support for families through Admiral Nurses. These highly trained professionals offer practical and emotional support to individuals living with dementia and their families, ensuring that no one faces dementia alone.
