Maidenhead & Windsor Business & Community Awards 2023

On Friday 23rd September, a few members of the Mortgage Required team were lucky enough to be invited to The Maidenhead & Windsor Business & Community Awards held at Castle Hotel, Windsor. These awards are a result of a partnership between The Maidenhead & District Chamber of Commerce, Lime Blue Solutions, and Baylis Community Media CIC.

These awards take place annually to recognise the outstanding achievements of local businesses, as well as celebrate some of the amazing stories of groups and individuals within the community.

Mortgage Required were honoured to have won the award for Best SME (small and medium-sized enterprise) which we were absolutely delighted to receive! Managing Director, Tim said:

“Our amazing, team work hard to deliver a five-star service to our customers, we are so pleased this has been recognised by the business community.”

We would like to congratulate all of the winners and finalists who all deserved to be there.

The winner of the Young Hero Award (supported by Mortgage Required) was a young gentleman named Elliot Wilkinson, who received this award for his dedication to his younger sister, Pippa who lives with a number of life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. Elliot has raised a significant amount of money for the Alexander Devine Hospice which has helped Pippa so much. Elliot continues to raise awareness and funds on an ongoing basis in support of his sister. We think you will agree that Elliot’s compassion and empathy make him a more than worthy winner of this award and it was an absolute pleasure to spend time with him and his family during the evening.
