Mortgage from Hinckley & Rugby to help homeless


Homebuyers choosing Hinckley & Rugby’s new Charity Assist Mortgage will be helping homeless people move into a home and full-time work. The society is partnering with homelessness charity Emmaus Leicestershire & Rutland, donating £250 for every Charity Assist Mortgage taken out. The donations will help Emmaus provide a home and meaningful work in Hinckley for formerly homeless people for as long as they need it. People helped by Emmaus


Leicestershire & Rutland are referred to as companions and live at Elm Lea, in Hinckley, a former hotel where each has their own room and bathroom. While with Emmaus,


companions work in the charity’s shops as they get themselves back on their feet. Michelle Tong, Trainee Team


Leader in Hinckley & Rugby’s mortgage department, was one of the team which developed the new mortgage. She said: “Every day we help


our customers achieve their dreams of home ownership. “Now with this new mortgage,


our customers can show their support for people who have struggled to keep a roof over their heads. The Emmaus approach of wraparound support – a place to live, meaningful work, a supportive community – is incredibly valuable.


Mir Juma, Michelle Tong and Emmaus companion Tony Cyclists’ 340-mile round trip raises £45,000


Cycling enthusiasts from across the region took on a gruelling 340-mile round trip recently, helping to raise more than £45,000 for charity. Starting and finishing at Leicester


Racecourse, the 2,500 Furlongs Cycle Challenge took in the Yorkshire Moors as cyclists passed through some of England’s most famous racecourses - Doncaster, York itself and Market Rasen. The 2,500 Furlongs Challenge is


a bi-annual fundraiser organised by Hope Against Cancer, Leicester’s cancer research charity. The money raised through the challenge and homecoming party will go towards funding research into the prevention and treatment of cancer, with each cyclist raising a minimum of £1,000 to support local cancer research. More than 40 cyclists took on


the four-day challenge, including David Lillyman, who rode alongside his daughter Rebecca.

‘The 2,500 Furlongs Cycle Challenge has proved to me once again just how inspirational the Leicestershire community is’


In 2014, David was diagnosed


with throat cancer at the age of 46. After months of treatment at the Hope Clinical Trials facility, he was


remarkably given the all-clear. This was David’s second challenge - he rode in the previous one back in 2017.


Another incredible rider was


Chris Trethewey, a Hope-funded researcher who recently swam the English Channel, raising over £10,000 in the process. While Chris was meant to be


involved in the event in a support capacity only, he ended up riding an impressive 115 miles on the last day of the Challenge. Hope Against Cancer CEO Nigel


Rose said: “The 2,500 Furlongs Cycle Challenge has proved to me once again just how inspirational the Leicestershire community is. “It gives me great pleasure to tell


you that £45,000 has been raised for vital, local cancer research and it is always a privilege for me to be part of the support crew on the cycle rides. Our cyclist and support volunteers are a key part of the Hope Against Cancer family of supporters and I’m overwhelmed by the generosity, hard work and commitment of everybody that took part.”


“We hope lots of customers


select the new Charity Assist Mortgage, enabling Hinckley & Rugby to make lots of donations to Emmaus so the charity can help more companions to embark on a fresh start with lots of support in a welcoming place to call home.” Mir Juma, Chief Executive of Emmaus Leicestershire & Rutland, added: “We are really pleased that Hinckley & Rugby is supporting its local homelessness charity. Each £250 donated will contribute to a month’s accommodation, food, clothing, support and training for a formerly homeless person. That means every mortgage approved is not just helping a homebuyer but also providing a home for someone in a vulnerable situation.” Tony, a current Emmaus


Leicestershire & Rutland companion, helped launch the new mortgage. He said: “After a battle with


alcohol addiction I left rehab sober but with nowhere to live. If it wasn’t for Emmaus I would probably have ended up on the streets. “They gave me a roof over my


head and a place to feel safe. After four years with Emmaus I’m still doing well. It’s a reason to get out of bed in the morning and a reason to feel good about myself. Thanks to Emmaus, I’m feeling positive about my future.”
