2024 Charity Challenge

The team at Mortgage Required and the Insurance Room are back for another charity challenge!

Having raised a fantastic £6,020 for charity in 2023, we are back this year with different events and challenges.

These charities and events will be chosen by our team allowing them to pick something close to their own heart. The cost of the event will be paid for by the individual with Mortgage Required paying an additional 33 pence for every pound raised. We know charities need our support now more than ever to enable them to carry out their vital work, which is why we are very proud and excited to be continuing to support both local and national charities in 2024!

In 2022 and 2023, we raised a combined total of £15,120 by taking part in various events - you can check out those completed in 2023 below. Make sure you keep checking back as we intend to add more for 2024!
