Breekon & Hope is a delivery company that appears to deal with the esoteric or arcane. It appears to be based in Nottingham and went into liquidation in 2009 (MAG 2).  

Breekon & Hope was founded by Alfred Breekon, with “& Hope” being a figure of speech rather than referring to a name. Since 1993, the company has been administrated and staffed by what appear to be two rubbery-skinned deliverymen who speak in exaggerated cockney accents. These men are in fact humanlike mimics affiliated with the domain of The Stranger and were once members of the Circus of the Other. During the 1990s, they continued to take orders from the Circus’s ringmaster, Gregor Orsinov (MAG 96). More recently, they have been working for Nikola Orsinov and helping with her preparations for The Unknowing. They also have some connection to the coffin first seen in MAG 2, and it has to remain near them (MAG 101).
