MKM does DIY SOS

We’re always proud to be involved with special causes and the BBC’s recent DIY SOS was no exception to this. Our MKM branches Hull and Anlaby pledged special support to the build and made a huge difference to the lives of local Jason Liversidge, his wife Liz and their faDIY SOSmily.

Diagnosed with life limiting Motor Neurone disease meant the family had a huge task to transform their home to accommodate Jason’s additional needs. With the costs in the region of £55,000 it seemed an impossible task.

Having been tipped off with the story the BBC put out the SOS call for local trades and suppliers to get in touch if they were willing and able to help. Our branches teamed up and helped with bathroom and plumbing equipment worth thousands of pounds.

Both branch and office staff who were involved in the initiative commented on the emotional connection with lending a hand, and here at MKM we’re proud to have been able to help.
