Making A Stink
They say never work with children or animals but it appears the same could be said for several people in the mortgage industry.
There are just some things you really cant legislate for. Such as silly messages written on white boards. It seems that someone at Mortgagematch Home Loans thought it would be funny to sneak the message Amo stinks onto the white board in the background of our Meet the Mortgage Desk last month. Honestly, you just cant get the staff these days!!
Hall Offers Up His Ball
Ever one to make a scene, it should really come as no surprise that Mortgage Distributor group editor Robyn Hall got a little carried away at Promise Finances third annual charity golf shindig in Portugals Parque de Florista.
Hall managed to crash into Promise boss Steve Walkers charity auction with starting bids of 1,000 for what were some rather trivial items which spoiled the fun somewhat for the assembled great and good. Some failed bids later and all Hall ended up with was a football signed by David Beckham which, in his benevolence, he has now decided to give away.
To be in with a chance of winning this marvellous piece of footballing memorabilia simply visit the Mortgage Strategy/Mortgage Distributor stand at next months Mortgage Business Expo in Manchester and enter the prize draw.
And now for the shameless attempt to get Mortgage Distributors readers to part with some hard earned cash, all in the name of charity. Esteemed editor Matt West, along with the team from Mortgage Strategy minus scaredy cat Lee Jones is to jump out of a plane 13,000 ft up in the air attached (he hopes) to a parachute as part The Mortgage Business charity fund raising event.
The show takes place on May 1 so you havent got too long to sponsor him. All the money raised will go to the British Heart Foundation and Save the Family.
Offers of support, first aid tips, donations and prayers are all welcome at mortgage.
