Some of the causes we have partnered with
Belmont Green's mortgage lending brand, Vida Homeloans, has won a business award from Spelthorne Borough Council, in recognition of its contribution to the local economy - Best Business in Staines-upon-Thames & Laleham 2019. Since establishing the business in the borough in October 2016, Belmont Green has very quickly become a substantial part of the Spelthorne business landscape. The employment that Belmont Green has provided at its head office in the Strata Building on Bridge Street shows its commitment and contribution to the local area.
Vida Homeloans sponsors The Big Duck Race at the Staines-upon-Thames Day in July each year to raise money for MidasPlus – a local charity dedicated to helping the disadvantaged in Staines-upon-Thames, Egham and surrounding areas. Ducks from Vida race alongside 100 others on a route which starts at the Two Rivers Pub on River Colne and finishes on the River Thames. Individuals and companies buy large ducks and decorate them in an array of different styles with logos, colours, and accessories. From Drake the duck to a ‘James Pond’ dressed duck, Vida’s staff truly embrace the decorative side of the event!
MidasPlus raises and distributes funds to community groups and individuals who have nowhere else to turn. It was first established in 2005 and has since distributed more than £200,000 to worthwhile causes.
A team of eight Vida Homeloans employees successfully completed the Prudential RideLondon -Surrey100 on 30th July 2017 to raise £5,000 for Shelter. The 100-mile bike ride, whose route starts at the Olympic Park, heads out to the Surrey Hills and ends on the Mall, was completed by Team Vida in a range of times from 5 to 7 hours. Their efforts put them in the top 1% of fundraisers on JustGiving.
Belmont Green helps people who might not fit high street lenders' criteria to buy property using a mortgage. But we recognise that not everyone is as fortunate with their housing and we feel that it is important to support Shelter in its work helping homeless families in the UK.
As a significant local employer, Belmont Green supports Spelthorne Borough Council in a number of ways, including hosting events such as the Staines-upon-Thames Business Improvement District (BID) meetings and contributing funds towards the Staines-upon-Thames Christmas lights and the Egham Royal Show.
