Edinburgh-based homebuilder employees raise over £100,000 for charity.

Greig Anderson, regional production director for Miller Homes developments in the West of Scotland

TWO employees of Scottish homebuilder, Miller Homes, have been upping their charity efforts to support members of the NHS and the community over recent months.

Michael Smith, a business analyst with Miller Homes Group IT team, has turned his unique hobby of 3D printing and joined with other 3D printer hobbyists from around the country to create protective headbands to attach masks to for key workers.

Meanwhile, Greig Anderson, regional production director for Miller Homes developments in the West of Scotland, has received a commendation from the British Red Cross for the work he has carried out to help raise over £100k for the charity.

Based in West Lothian, Michael said: “As individuals, it’s such a small job, it almost feels like it’s not worthwhile. 

“However, for every face mask that we help to make, that’s another life protected, which is the least we can do to thank those who are putting themselves on the front line every day.”

Greig has raised money for the annual Red Cross ball in Edinburgh for the last five years, selling tables and collating auction prizes. He explained: “I chose to support the British Red Cross because it helps out people from all backgrounds and is local to the central belt of Scotland.

“As the charity provides ambulances, club funding for the vulnerable and specialist equipment for those in need, it is very diverse and that’s what has drawn me to raise so much money for such a great cause”.

Peter Thomson, Miller Homes in Scotland regional managing director, said: “As a team, we all know how passionate Greig is about the important work of the British Red Cross. 

“He has raised a tremendous amount over the last few years and we’ve been delighted to support his efforts for such a worthwhile cause.”
