Family-run building contractor, PMC Construction, have scaled new heights after climbing Kilimanjaro for charity.

The Hampshire-based business have started the season of goodwill by sponsoring their environmental consultant, Lee MacDonald from Omnia Consulting to climb Africa’s highest dormant volcano to raise money for Rowan’s Hospice.

In total, Lee raised £2,500 for Rowan’s Hospice, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of people living with life-limiting illnesses, as well as their families and carers, in Portsmouth and South East Hampshire.

This achievement comes as PMC prepare for the reopening of the Life House in Southsea, a support centre and kitchen for those with immediate needs and issues surrounding homelessness and addiction. PMC along with its business partners A D Mechanical, M R Electrical and Finest Windows redecorated, upgraded toilet facilities and lighting, installed new windows and rebuilt the floor so the charity could more effectively use the space they have. The refurbishment was carried out in just over 1 week so there would be minimal disruption to people who rely on the charity.

The Life House will have an official opening by Donna Jones, Leader of Portsmouth City Council and Mark Caitlin, CEO of Portsmouth Football Club on Thursday 14th December. At the same time, Matt McGee from PMC will present the charity with a cheque for £400 sponsorship which he raised completing the 2017 etape du tour (a 178km cycle from Briacon to Col d’Izoard in the Alps with 3,526 metres of climbing). The PMC team will be undertaking a number of other challenges to support the Life House during 2018. Watch this space!
