OMA® National Advisor Awards – WINNERS REVEALED

By Pete Mugleston

Published: 22nd January 2021 Last updated: 13th April 2021


I think I speak for everyone who’s watched it, that was a cracking way to spend half hour, even those who have no interest in mortgages watching have commented how much they enjoyed it.

The soundtrack had us dancing like a DJ set throughout (forgot what that’s like this year), the presenter Kristian Biggs didn’t disappoint with his (mostly) uncensored approach to ripping into the fair game in front of him, the emotional insight by Daniel and the children in Uganda for our chose charity Mercy Hands, some comedy with viewers interacting in the live chat, the winners crowned in glory, and of course the celebs who made a great crack of presenting the awards.

Watch it back here


Supporting a great cause

If you haven’t already checked out our chosen charity MHU, you can do so here, and please please please DONATE! They really need the cash and it goes a Looooong way over there.



Some snaps from the day







Thanks also to our sponsors, Mansfield Building Society, Bluestone Mortgages, Kensington Mortgages, Precise Mortgages, Masthaven Bank, Fluent Money, Criteria Hub & Mortgage Brain – without their support we wouldn’t have had much of an awards show this  year, and we are delighted to say that because of them, Mercy Hands Uganda will be funded again this year.
