LANDBAY has partnered with homelessness charity the Cardinal Hume Centre to help tackle poverty and housing issues.
The peer-to-peer buy-to-let lender will donate £10 for every mortgage completion to the Westminster-based charity.
The centre provides safe accommodation with round-the-clock care for homeless young people; specialised advice and advocacy for vulnerable and isolated people; and support for children and families in need.
Landbay will also embark on a range of fundraising activities for the charity. Earlier this year, a Landbay team participated in a Tough Mudder Challenge that raised £1,700.
“As a buy-to-let lender we are aware of the challenge homelessness presents for the UK,” John Goodall (pictured), chief executive of Landbay, said.

“Not only will we be donating £10 for every mortgage we complete, we will also be actively raising awareness for this worthy cause and taking part in more activities, such as the Tough Mudder Challenge. Landbay is proud to partner with such an important charity at a time when housing is such a key issue in society.”
Mags Tierney, director of fundraising at the Cardinal Hume Centre, said the charity was thrilled to be working in partnership with Landbay.
“Landbay’s support of the Cardinal Hume Centre, with its innovative idea of donating £10 for every mortgage completed throughout the year, is a huge boost to our work with homeless young people and families,” Tierney said.
“The staff are all pitching in too, volunteering in our family centre and tackling Tough Mudder to raise sponsorship money, which is really impressive.”
