Giving Back - Our Charity Partners

Not only do we look to help you with your mortgage and protection needs, but we also believe in giving back to our community. That is why on every mortgage that completes, we will donate a proportion of our commission to one of our three charity partners chosen by you.

Registered as a charity in 1995, PACT the largest 'all animal' welfare charity in the East of England maintains an Animal Sanctuary where 1500 animals are cared for, plus making difference to a further 2500 animals every year. PACT finds good loving homes for over 850 animals and releases back into the countryside over 800 British wild animals annually. This winter PACT cared for 276 hedgehogs that were too small to hibernate in the wild and they will be released in the Spring. PACT welcomes over 120 students for animal welfare work experience and has a therapy centre dedicated to the rehabilitation of disabled people who interact with the animals to gain and regain their health, confidence and self-esteem. PACT has a 'no kill' policy and is only financed by public donations.

Big C is Norfolk's Cancer Charity. Since 1980, with the support and fundraising of the local community, we've been working to improve the lives of local people affected by cancer. Through our local Support and Information Centres offering free practical and emotional support and information, funding research into cancer across the Norwich Research Park, and investing in vital medical equipment in our county's main hospitals, we are helping local people get the best cancer care.
