Miller Unveils Specially Designed Buckets in Support of Lighthouse Construction Charity

A leading global manufacturer of quick couplers and buckets will be showcasing its support to the company’s chosen charity as it unveils limited edition buckets at this year’s largest quarrying, mining and recycling exhibition.

Miller UK, headquartered in the North East of England with facilities across the globe, will launch four of its most popular heavy duty buckets at Hillhead Exhibition, which have been specially branded with the Lighthouse Construction Charity’s #makeitvisible initiative.

As the only charity of its type in the UK, the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity provides extensive support to not only construction workers in need, but also to their families. The charity’s Make It Visible taskforce plays an integral role in making welfare and wellbeing support in construction visible, in sight, and, accessible on every site.

To raise awareness of the much-needed support the charity offers, which includes an extensive pool of resources on its #MakeItVisible portal, Miller has branded its buckets with the charity’s logo, its #MakeItVisible slogan and its bright colours synonymously known with the charity.

And the buckets will be sited around Hillhead, on Miller’s stand itself, as well as on customers stands including Case Construction, SMT GB and Hitachi Construction Machinery UK. For any bucket that is sold at the show, all profits will be donated by Miller to the charity.

The company has also developed a range of mini model buckets – also branded with the Lighthouse Charity – that will be available for people to buy at the show and online, with 100% of all proceeds being donated. There will also be a scavenger hunt of mini buckets around the quarry with visitors invited to find as many buckets as they can to enter a prize draw for the chance to win tickets to the charity’s annual ball, donated by Miller.

Speaking about the charity drive, Barry Robison, Group Sales and Commercial Director at Miller said: “The Lighthouse Charity is vital in our industry, and, to show our support and help raise as much awareness as we can of the great work the charity does and resources that are available, we have chosen to unveil our buckets at this year’s Hillhead.

“The show provides a fantastic arena to reach out to a huge amount of people in the industry – and at all levels – which is very important.  We hope to raise a lot of money for the charity with our latest initiatives and continue to give back in our community. We would like to thank all the companies who have supported our efforts with having the buckets on their stands.”

The Lighthouse Charity delivers an array of services such as a free and confidential 24/7 helpline, text support service, live online chat help and a Wellbeing Academy offering free wellbeing training for the industry.

With a strong foothold in the quarrying and mining sector, Miller will be showcasing products from its full product portfolio including its GT series quick couplers, its extreme rock buckets, as well as a bucket that has been almost 100% robot welded and left unfinished for visitors to see the true quality of weld on Miller’s bucket range.
