As an independent estate agent within Brighton, Hove, and the surrounding Sussex area, at Mishon Mackay we know the importance of supporting those in the community. The COVID-19 situation has had an unprecedented impact on everyone, with small, independent businesses some of the most at risk in terms of being able to survive for the long-term.

We’re shining a spotlight on some of the local businesses doing great things to keep up and running and continuing to support their customers throughout this difficult time. You can also find a comprehensive list of local Brighton businesses that are operating and delivering here.
