Miller Homes’ Matthew Hughes, Senior Quantity Surveyor from Ashton, is gearing up for the Tough Mudder challenge this weekend to raise money for Habitat for Humanity’s Hope Builders Campaign. Miller Homes has pledged to raise £3,000 for the charity, which aims to help families living in poverty build new lives and be housed in safe homes.

Matthew is preparing himself for a 10-12 mile run that will feature 500’000 litres of grade-A mud and 40 tonnes of ice. He will also be taking on over 20 world-class obstacles that the course designers have created based on inspiration from around the world. The team will have their strength, stamina and mental grit put to the test with obstacles such as the ‘Block Ness Monster’, ‘Electroshock Therapy’, and the revamped ‘Arctic Enema’.

Matthew Hughes, Senior Quantity Surveyor from Miller Homes in the North West, comments: “We are feeling excited and nervous all at the same time for Tough Mudder this year. Some of us are feeling more prepared than others but we are going to exhibit true teamwork and take on every obstacle to the best of our ability. We are looking forward to raising money for a charity as important as Habitat for Humanity. Miller Homes are passionate about supporting communities and charities, so every year we make it our priority to fundraise and help those in need.”

Habitat for Humanity believe that stable homes are the heartbeats of a community. The charity works with established partners in more than 70 countries across the world to offer simple, sustainable solutions by working with the poorest and most vulnerable people. They help provide improved access to water, sanitation facilities and land rights for women. The charity also work to help communities to become more resilient when affected by natural disasters.

The average cost of a Habitat Home is £3,000 and companies are being encouraged to offer their support and help a community get the heartbeat it deserves.
