Thank you for supporting the British Liver Trust

From Roger Rackstraw

Thank you for your support for the British Liver Trust through the MS Detox Relay Rally – and thanks for the substantial cheque, too.

As a small charity we are not blessed with many corporate supporters so it was exciting to have the backing of Mortgage Strategy.

Please pass on our thanks to the team who took part and of course to the companies and individuals who sponsored them including Accord Mortgages, Mortgages PLC, Skipton Building Society, Mortgage Express, Northern Rock, Xit2, Paul Fox, Platform, The Whitechurch Network, Pinnacle Insurance and Portman. We are especially pleased to note that Portman is among them as it is now our landlord!

Once again, a big thanks to everyone for deciding to support us.
