MPLC to sponsor golf event at Mortgage Summit

Mortgages PLC is to sponsor the golf event on the final day of the Mortgage Summit in Jerez on June 23.

The event will form part of the lender’s 2006 PGA Challenge and will offer delegates the chance to qualify for the UK final at Brocket Hall on July 3, where they could win a trip to the Grand Final in Spain in October.

Qualifiers have already taken place at Blackwell, Prestbury and Lanark and 12 brokers have already qualified for the final. The winners of the UK final qualify for the Grand Final which will be held in Spain over three days.

Julian Wells, head of marketing at MPLC, says: “Jerez looks like being an excellent event once again and we’re looking forward to spending time with the industry’s key players out there.”
