Miller Homes’ Matthew Hughes, from Ashton, has taken on the Tough Mudder challenge in support of Habitat for Humanity’s Hope Builders Campaign. Miller Homes have raised over £3,000 for the charity, whose mission is to help people out of poverty housing and lead a better quality of life.
Matthew and his team from Miller Homes’ North West offices, located in Newton-Le-Willows, pulled out all the stops for their well-deserved donations. The team, endured a 12-mile run through 500,000 litres of mud as well as 40 tonnes of ice. Exhibiting strong teamwork skills, Matthew and his fellow teammates helped each other through more than 20 obstacles, designed by the military’s Special Forces. To name a few hurdles, they took on the ‘Everest 2.0’, ‘Quagmire’ and the brand new ‘Augustus Gloop’ – all designed to drain your mental and physical strength.
Matthew Hughes, Senior Quantity Surveyor from Miller Homes in the North West, comments: “I’m so proud of the team for getting through Tough Mudder this year. Although it was physically challenging, we all pushed ourselves through every obstacle and inch of mud. I found it to be a great experience and I am thrilled that we raised so much for Habitat for Humanity – a very important charity that everyone at Miller Homes cares greatly for. We hope that the money we raised will contribute to building more ‘Habitat Homes’ for less fortunate families who do not have access to decent housing.”
Habitat for Humanity have a vision whereby everyone has a safe place to call home. They believe that this can lead to a more stable life and a way of breaking out of the cycle of poverty. The charity works with established partners in more than 70 countries across the world amongst the most vulnerable societies. They have provided over one million homes and helped over ten million people to become independent and live in stronger communities that have access to clean water and improved sanitation.
