In 2019, Miller Homes will form a partnership with other like minded companies and pick a team of ready and willing volunteers to build homes in Salima, Malawi alongside families in need of a decent place to live. The poverty in Salima is very high with most of the families ...
- My Story
As one of the key suppliers to Miller homes, Rettig UK Ltd have been chosen to be part of a life changing project in partnership with Miller Homes and Habitat for Humanity.
I (Anthony Duggan) have fortunately been chosen to represent the business for this project, which will involve travelling to Malawi on June 14th to be part of a team of volunteers. While involved in the project I will help build houses which will improve the lives of some of the world’s poorest families.
In order to raise as much money as possible I will be arranging many fund raising events. First of which will be a charity run from Rettig UK Gateshead facility (where I am based) to Rettig UK Birtley and back again on Friday 22nd March 2019.
Any donations will be greatly appreciated and will all be going towards a fantastic cause helping those who really are in need.
About Anthony Duggan
I started working at Rettig via an employment agency as a production operator in October 2004 just 2 weeks before my 18th birthday. I was then offered a full time contract as an operator and since then I have worked my way up to my current position as Team Manager in the Paint and Pack Department.
Outside of work I am a family man and spend most of my time with my partner and 2 kids. I have a 12 year old daughter and an 8 year old son. If I have any spare time I enjoy playing football and socialising with friends.
Over the last year I've been enjoying boxing training a couple of times a week and at the beginning of this year I had my first competitive boxing fight which I won. It was quite a challenge to step out in front of so many people but it was a great experience.
I enjoy new challenges and I am looking forward to being part of the team that will help the lives of underprivileged families when I visit Malawi in June.
