Miller Homes Launches Summer Of Sport Initiative For Third Year Running
Miller Homes is once again giving local sports clubs across Leicestershire the opportunity to win a fantastic £500.
For the third successive year, the leading UK housebuilder will be encouraging local clubs and organisations within the Midlands to enter the competition by collecting an application form from their local Miller Homes development.
To be in with a chance of winning the cash, entrants have to say in no more than 200 words why their sports club deserves to win, how the money will benefit the club and what it will be spent on.
Paul Walters, associate director of Miller Homes Midlands, said:
“We are delighted to be running our popular Summer of Sport initiative again. When it comes to supporting local communities we are always keen to get involved – particularly if our support can provide opportunities for education, sport or development. Building great communities is at the heart of our ethos, and we are confident that initiatives such as our Summer of Sport campaign go a long way towards nurturing these.”
Competition judges will be looking for examples of how the sporting clubs in each community will make the most out of the donation, for details of how it will directly support the learning and fitness of its members and examples of what new equipment they will be able to buy.
Paul Walters continued:
“We strongly encourage anyone with an affiliation to a sports team or club to have a go, and wish all entrants the very best of luck.”
Last year’s regional winner was Great Glen Cricket Club in Leicestershire, who used the money to help to buy an astro turf cricket pitch.
Willy van Ameersfort from the club said:
“I would encourage all to enter competitions which benefit the local community, and in particular, smaller sports clubs who find it difficult to raise funds. It is wonderful that a large company, such as Miller Homes has an active social responsibility program.”
Details of the initiative will be distributed at a local level among sports clubs and associations; however community leaders and club managers can also pick up an entry form at any one of Miller Homes’ marketing suites across the Midlands.

Closing date for entries is Monday 15th September, giving applicants plenty of time to prepare a winning application.
