Mental Health Charter founders to start 125-mile Walk and Talk fundraiser
The founders of the Mortgage Industry Mental Health Charter (MIMHC) have started their 125-mile Walk and Talk charity fundraising campaign.

The sponsored hike will take place over the next five days and forms part of MIMHC’s Walk and Talk 2024 initiative. This has been created to encourage physical activity and better communication to promote better wellbeing.

It will feature MIMHC co-founders Jason Berry (pictured) and Will Lloyd-Hayward along with industry stalwart Jonathan White, who is director at Number Fifteen Recruitment.

Along the route, the founders will be joined by:

  • Jane Benjamin, director at Connect for Intermediaries;
  • Kath Stagg, principal/owner of Stagg Mortgage Services;
  • Darrell Walker, head of mortgages sales and distribution at Moda Mortgages;
  • Peter Gwilliam, director of Virtus Search;
  • Bob Hunt, CEO of Paradigm Mortgage Services;
  • Richard Howes, director at Paradigm Mortgage Services;
  • Kris Corns, operations director at Crystal Specialist Finance;

  • Matthew Martin, head of national accounts at Virgin Money;
  • Andrew Milnes, business principal at Mortgage Advice Bureau (MAB);
  • Matt Taylor, national relationship manager at Shawbrook Bank;

Berry said: “The message is simple – let’s get walking, let’s get talking and let’s ensure the best possible mental health for those working in the mortgage sector.”

Lloyd-Hayward added: “We’re inviting everyone to join us on this journey towards better mental health. Throughout Mental Health Awareness Week, we’re also encouraging everyone to track and record their step count – as well as share their photos and personal experiences – using the hashtag #walkandtalk2024 .

“A mystery prize will be awarded to the mortgage sector individual who undertakes the most steps between Monday May 13, and Sunday May 19 – although the steps must be validated using a suitable device. Jason, Jonathan and I are not allowed to enter.”
