Business partners Ian Walton (pictured right), aged 34, and James Tudor, aged 51, have just opened a land and estate agency, named Tudor Walton.

The shop in the village centre will open in January, but the pair has already started trading on well-known housing websites.

In order to give back to the community, they are going to donate commission from its mortgage service to charities in the area.

Each completed mortgage can range from £100-750, all of which will go straight to a good cause.

Mr Walton is asking charities in need of funding to step forward and claim some of the support on offer.

He said: “We have both worked for other estate agents, where the emphasis is often on trying to sell additional products and services to the customers, such as mortgage and insurance products.

“This is a good source of income, but unfortunately now there is far too much emphasis on it at some of the larger agents.

“So, although we do have our own in-house mortgage advisor, we won’t be trying to push these mortgages for our own gain. If a customer does choose one of our mortgages, then we will donate the commission we receive to the customers’ favourite charity or good cause.”

“We just feel that it is nice to give something back, and we know there are plenty of community groups in need of funding, especially at this time of year.”
