A homebuilder, that has six developments across the Teesside region, has made a unique pledge to our Trust charity.
Miller Homes has partnered with North Tees and Hartlepool Together, our Trust’s official charity. The company has pledged to donate £75 for each house sold at its Pearwood Gardens development in Eaglescliffe.
Mark Bayliss, Regional Managing Director at Miller Homes Teesside, said: “The £75 reflects the seventy-fifth anniversary of the NHS in 2023 and is our way of supporting these vital services in our communities that also provide considerable employment to people in our area.
“Several of our developments are located close to the buildings within the Trust and they will bring vital new homes for people to choose to live close to where they work.”
Pearwood Gardens will see 100 homes created at the development. This means that £7,500 will be donated to the charity to continue to support patients to receive high quality care. Funding will also purchase the latest high-tech equipment and be used to make spaces more comfortable and welcoming.
“Generous support and commitment”
Suzi Campbell is fundraising coordinator for North Tees and Hartlepool Together. She commented: “Our thanks go to Miller Homes for their generous commitment to supporting the work that we do.
“As a charitable Trust, donations support us to fund key projects such as supplying dementia touch screen tablets to help our patients with memory based games and activities, and this type of backing from a local business is greatly appreciated.”
This is the latest in a raft of initiatives that the Miller Homes Teesside team offers to its local community. Other projects include:
- The twice-yearly Community Fund, where applications are invited from local charities and community groups to apply for donations
- Visits to schools to educate children of health and safety on its developments
- Competitions with local schools, which saw schools in Hartlepool design flags to commemorate the Tall Ships Festival this summer
