Mortgage Required in the Community

At Mortgage Required we are passionate about working within the community that supports us.

We have worked closely with various local charities and clubs since we opened in 2001 and have always had a chosen charity who we support each year. In 2020 we have taken a different approach and have invited the team to support which ever charity they personally feel passionate about with our Mortgage Required Charity Challenge. See below for further information. We believe that supporting good causes benefits both the charity and the individual participating.


Mortgage Required 2020 Charity Challenge.

We are delighted to announce our charity pledge for 2020. The whole Mortgage Required team have committed to raise money by entering a sponsored event in 2020.
The charity and event is their choice allowing the team to pick something close to their own heart, with the only condition that it must be something to work towards.
The cost of the event will be paid for by the individual with Mortgage Required kicking of the sponsorship with a £75 donation for each event.
So far we have entries into Ride London, The Great North Run and the Windsor Half Marathon with other team members joining up all the time. We will post regular training updates as well as keeping you informed of fundraising totals and achievements. Find out more...

Tea on the Thames

A Lovely Sunny day on the Thames greeted our guests on the 5th of September as they were welcomed aboard the Beautiful Southern Comfort paddle steamer by the Mortgage Required team and representatives from Alzheimer Dementia Support.

The afternoon was a great success with entertainment from singer Julie George and a splendid tea complete with scones and cakes. We were delighted to once again support this event continuing our 5 year relationship with Alzheimer Dementia Support. The charity which helps those suffering from this horrible disease and their carers carries out essential work in the community and can be a real life line to many in the community.

Tim Atkinson, Managing Director of Mortgage Required commented. “We were delighted to be able to sponsor this event again this year. I understand the guests all had an excellent afternoon in the sunshine, however it is just possible the team representing Mortgage Required had an even better one as they chatted with the guests, joined in the sing song and enjoyed the spectacular scenery on the Thames.

FC Holyport

FC Holyport is an Under 8’s team set up by Holyport local Mark Branwhite in the Summer of 2015. The team have been making great progress and what they lack in heritage they more than make up for in enthusiasm.

Based at Bray Cricket Club, in their striking Purple kit complete with Mortgage Required livery we have high hopes for 2016 and perhaps the next Wayne Rooney.
