A Hoylake mortgage brokerage are celebrating their 3rd birthday with a big Wirral coastal walk for the homeless. Root Mortgages’ charity walk is taking place on Monday 28th August, with many other local people and businesses joining them, in order to raise funds for their charity partners, Wirral Ark.
Founded in 2021, Root Mortgages have become one of the fastest growing new businesses in Wirral — with over £50 million of lending secured for over 300 home buyers and over 100 5 star reviews. That said, Directors Rhys Davidson and Kieran Wooley have a very community focused ethos.
Root Mortgages offers a no-fee advice service (usually £500) to those working in the emergency services and first time buyers. In 2021 they sponsored the Santa Dash and earlier this year they teamed up with CSB UK to help deliver a better experience for kids playing grassroots football, as well as sponsoring local leagues.
Their annual walk, now in its third year, has raised over £3,000 for local charities and this year’s walk will raise money for Wirral Ark — a charity based in Birkenhead that bridges the gap for those who are destitute. The walk is taking place on Monday 28th August at Fort Perch Rock in New Brighton at 10.30am and finishes at The Green Lodge in Hoylake for food and drinks.
Root Mortgages’ Rhys Davidson said: “Whilst we are facilitating people’s purchases of their dream homes, we are also mindful of those less fortunate. We teamed up with Wirral Ark earlier this year and decided to donate £10 of every mortgage deal to their cause, as well as choosing them as beneficiaries of our annual walk.”
Founded in 1991, Wirral Ark provides accommodation and support for 100-200 people facing homelessness each year through their 11 accommodation centres. The charity has 35 staff and helps a wide range of people, from those suffering with addiction to those who have been victims of domestic abuse. They have helped over 5,000 people since forming over 30 years ago.
Root Mortgages’ Kieran Wooley said: “Last year our walk raised over £1,500 and we aim to surpass that this year. It’s a great community event and an opportunity for us to catch up with all our clients we’ve helped and network with other businesses whilst raising money for a great local charity.”
The walk is taking place on Monday 28th August, starting at Fort Perch Rock in New Brighton at 10.30am and finishing at The Green Lodge in Hoylake for food and drinks. Anyone can get involved and there’s a GoFundMe for people to donate.
Wirral Ark Manging Director Paul Hardman said: “Our charity is very grateful for the support of Root Mortgages and it’s truly refreshing to see a company such as a mortgage brokerage not forgetting those who find themselves destitute. Their efforts will help raise funds for our forward thinking projects, such as holistic therapy sessions, PTSD courses, photography, art and music workshops and gardening projects.”
Root Mortgages are leading a big Wirral coastal walk in aid of Wirral Ark on Monday 28th August 2023, starting at Fort Perch Rock in New Brighton at 10.30am and finishing at The Green Lodge in Hoylake. Anyone is welcome to participate and donations can be made at any time via GoFundMe.
