Here, at Mortgage Required, we know how hard the last 12 months have been for many of us within Maidenhead and the local community. The whole world has been turned on its head and many have had their lives negatively affected.

We wanted to do our bit to both recognise and say thank you to those we know who’ve gone the extra mile during this interminable lockdown. We are calling it the Mortgage Required Lockdown Heroes Awards.

You’ve got until 19 March 2021 to nominate anyone that you feel has been a hero during this difficult time. They might be a health worker, delivery driver, shop assistant or volunteer. Anyone that has gone the extra mile to help keep your spirits up or help you in the day-today can be nominated and we’d really love to hear from you.

The nominations will be judged by The Right Honourable Theresa May MP, Jeremy Spooner of the Maidenhead Advertiser and our very own Tim Atkinson, Managing Director of Mortgage Required.

We’re giving away 3 Fortnum and Mason hampers plus runner up prizes of spring floral displays to our winning local heroes! So if you’d like to say thank you to someone that has gone the extra mile this year and helped others in the community please consider making a nomination before 19 March!

Nominate Your Maidenhead Lockdown Hero Here.
