For each mile an employee walks during the challenge, Miller Homes donates £1 to the regional chosen charity.

For April 2024, a company wide target of 60,000 miles was set thereby equating to a donation of £60,000 to the groups chosen charities. Employees smashed this target, clocking up a phenomenal 82,228 miles meaning there has been a total donation of £82,228 for charities across the UK.

Mark added; “What an amazing effort by our Teesside team, but also everyone in the wider Miller Homes group. We’ve already taken part in lots more fundraising challenges for GNAAS and have many more planned throughout the year to ensure this vital service for people of Teesside, the North East, North Yorkshire, Cumbria and the Isle of Man, can continue the superb work it does.”
