Sponsorship & Charity

At The Mortgage Shop we firmly believe in supporting and working closely with the community where we are located.

So we regularly get involved in sponsoring local teams, organisations and events as well as doing our bit for local charities.

The Mortgage Shop, supporting Tom Corden's The Open Qualifying

Tom Corden's Open Qualifying

On Monday 24th June 2024, The Mortgage Shop sponsored local golfer, Tom Corden (right) as he was participating in The Open qualifying at Rochester and Cobham Golf Club.

With only 7 places available out of 126 participants for the next round of qualifying, Tom unfortunately missed out. However he put in a great effort!

Football iQ Kit Sponsorship

The Mortgage Shop are proud to sponsor Football iQ by supplying their team kit.

In May 2024, the team recently finished runners up in the Chelsea Cup losing narrowly 1-0 in a very close final. An outstanding performance for a team playing up an age group.

The Mortgage Shop, supporting St Peter's Baptist Church

St Peter's Baptist Church Donation

At The Mortgage Shop this year, we have decided not to send out Christmas cards and have instead donated to the St Peters Baptist Church. This will help with their emergency and hardship fund which will be helping people in need and we are pleased to be supporting a great cause.

Gary met with Rhod Walters and Kate Grant (members of the church) to hand over the cheque for our donation. We decided that we would donate £1 for every mortgage we arranged this year and we are pleased to say that the total amount was £756, which we know will be supporting a very worthwhile cause.

Copenhagen to Berlin Cycle Ride

Gary and his wife Julie, along with 2 of their good friends, recently took part in a cycle from Copenhagen to Berlin.

They cycled through some beautiful scenery, over big and small bridges and stayed in some lovely resorts! A charity close to our hearts, Louie’s Helping Hands, are raising money to go towards having a wheelchair accessible roundabout and we have donated £500 towards this which we know will help them towards their goals.

Louie's Helping Hands Golf Day at Westgate Golf Club

On Friday 17th May we were one of the main sponsors of the Louie's Helping Hands Golf day, held at Westgate Golf club.

We entered a team who accumulated 116 points between them and although this wasn't a winning score it was a great day, enjoyed by all and for a great cause!

This a charity close to The Mortgage Shop's heart and we know they would be very grateful for any donations.

Cambodia to Vietnam 400km Charity Cycle Ride Raises £3k

Gary and Julie handing over 50% to Louie's Helping Hands

On the 11th March 2017, Julie and I completed our 400km cycle ride from Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam to Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

The ride was challenging but hugely enjoyable. We managed to raise £3k and thank you for all of you who donated.

One of my charities was Louie's Helping Hands and you can see us handing over 50% of the raised funds to Louie's mum Sarah at the Llewellyn school.

Ethiopian Football Kit Donated By The Mortgage Shop

I am delighted to say that we have a fantastic picture of some happy boys in Ethiopia wearing a football kit that we at the Mortgage Shop donated to them.

We have a very good client, Kate Mockeridge who with a very dedicated team of other midwives went back to Ethiopia for one of their numerous trips to help educate women in child birth procedures and also train the local doctors and midwives.

As you can see from the state of the pitch, that these smiling boys who had their picture taken with Kate, don't have much in life, but love their football. As we are all big supporters in our company of the beautiful game, we were delighted to provide a football kit (there are socks and shorts in their hands) as Kate had mentioned how they love to wear anything to do with football.

As Kate and her husband Peter, along with other midwives and their husbands volunteer to do these trips in their spare time, we felt this was the least we could do. We are in awe of the dedication that Kate , the other midwives and their partners show in travelling regularly to Ethiopia and as Kate said, 'something that we consider quite trivial makes these boy's year'!
