Brightstar’s Brian Leppard seeks industry support for Kilimanjaro charity climb

By Bridging Loan Directory -


Brightstar Financial’s Brian Leppard, Head of Specialist Mortgages and Buy to Let, is set to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in February 2013, and is looking to the mortgage industry to help him to raise at least £5000 in aid of the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

In partnership with his brother in law, Barry, the charity means a lot personally to both men. Having lost family members and friends to heart conditions, Brian and Barry have made it a goal to raise as much as they can to help fund research into improvements in diagnosis, prevention and rehabilitation of people suffering from heart conditions.

Brian said, “ I am hopeful that friends and business colleagues in the industry will help Barry and I reach our initial goal of £5000. I am a serial fund raiser for BHF and I would like to think that for anyone out there in the intermediary and lender community, whether they have or just know family members and friends who are suffering or have lost people close to them because of heart problems, they might consider supporting our expedition by donating through my JustGiving page –”

He added, “ We are nearly two thirds of the way to our target. Knowing the inherent generosity of our business contacts, I am sure we will reach our goal.”

Brian’s only problem is the timing of the climb, which will coincide with Valentine’s Day. He will no doubt pay handsomely when he gets home to his wife and family!
