Attendees of the 2017 Legal & General Mortgage Club Awards raised £4,083 for the charity Shelter, over £1000 more than the amount raised the previous year.
Industry professionals, including advisers and lenders, came together on Friday 9 June for Legal & General’s annual event, raising the funds through a raffle for the charity for housing and the homeless.
The annual ceremony, which was held at The Guildhall in the City of London, recognises excellence in the mortgage industry over the past 12 months.
Jeremy Duncombe (pictured), director, Legal & General Mortgage Club, said: “This year’s Mortgage Club Awards were a huge success and we are delighted that during the event attendees managed to raise over £4000 for our charity partner, Shelter.
“It’s important to remember that on every occasion an adviser helps someone to buy a property, sadly elsewhere another is living in fear of eviction, repossession or without a permanent home.
“This is precisely where Shelter plays such a positive role, helping to support millions of individuals across the UK with advice and support on homelessness and housing. We are grateful for all the support attendees could provide at last week’s Awards.”
For any advisers who want to support this cause further, they can sign up to Legal & General’s ‘Brokering Change’ partnership with Shelter, which allows brokers to make a small donation from their procuration fees to help change someone’s life for the better.
