30 years of supporting communities
In 2021, Mather Jamie plans to commemorate 30 years of working with our clients and partners to create residential communities and local economic wealth through the provision of quality commercial enterprises.
When we engage with our clients, especially when we are working with landowners on strategic land planning with development potential, ﬁrst and foremost, we seek to understand their needs, but almost always there is a mutual desire to create something that will add value to the community.
Of course, as well as building communities, this also involves extending a helping hand to others, and with this in mind we have always tried to raise money for local charities. In 2021, our 30th anniversary year, we are planning to run, walk, climb or even swim an extra mile or two, because we are planning a number of initiatives to help raise £30,000 (or more if we can), to support three local charities who do so much great work.
Our most recent charity event was a Top Gear style challenge (Bangers & Cash) whereby four teams were challenged to buy a £500 ‘banger’ and drive to six well known Leicestershire landmarks, purchase an antique for £50 and finish the day with a series of drag races at Prestwold Airfield.

In September 2021 members of the Mather Jamie team set out to walk the 100 mile Leicestershire Round Walk to help raise vital funds for our chosen charities in order to raise £30k. You can read all about it by clicking here.
The charities we have committed to support are; One Roof LEICESTER, LOROS and Rainbows Children’s Hospice, which is very close to our offices in Loughborough. All charities have suffered over the last year as a result of the pandemic and we hope that with the support of our clients, partners and employees that we will be able to help them carry on doing the great work they do within their local communities.
Here is a little bit more information about what each charity does to explain why we have chosen to support them.
