A team of Yorkshire housebuilders has raised almost £4,500 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital after choosing it as its charity of the year for 2023.
Miller Homes, with 10 developments across the region, asked its staff members to nominate a charity of the year and Sheffield Children’s Hospital charity received the most votes.
During the year, the housebuilding team has held bake sales and a TV auction, undertaken charity challenges, and participated in ‘Active April’, which saw £1 donated by the business for every mile walked by team members during the month.
“I am very proud of the team and the commitment they have shown to raising money to support this charity which helps children across Yorkshire and the UK who require hospital care,” said Justin Tranmere, Regional Operations Director, Miller Homes Yorkshire. “Lots of our team have made a real effort to participate and have been so dedicated to helping children and their families who need to call on the services of these amazing health care professionals.”
Sheffield Children’s Hospital offers state-of-the art facilities and has a worldwide reputation for the most amazing treatment and is ably supported by The Children’s Hospital Charity to deliver the best care to thousands of patients.
In 2022, 213,000 outpatients attended, almost 11,000 inpatients treated and over 60,000 patients were treated at Accident and Emergency. It is one of three specialist children’s hospitals in the UK, alongside Great Ormond Street and Alder Hey in Liverpool.
Harriet Keynes, Corporate Partnerships Officer, The Children’s Hospital Charity added:
“We are extremely grateful to Miller Homes for their amazing support this year. Their fundraising has been so successful, with many staff members going above and beyond to do as much as they can for our charity. Their unique fundraising ideas, such as holding a TV auction, have been really inspiring. I would like to say a massive thank you to all at Miller Homes, you are making a massive difference to the patients, families, and staff of Sheffield Children’s Hospital.”
