PASMA and Children in Need come to town

PASMA and Children in Need come to town

  • Date: Monday 17th November 2014

Britain’s lead mobile tower trade association PASMA, visited Plymouth last week to raise money for Children in Need and promote scaffold towers, at a time when falls from height are still the main cause of death at work.

As part of PASMA’s Tower Week, PASMA Chairman Chris Blantern has and still is, visiting as many of the association’s hundreds of training centres as possible, including SSG Training and Consultancy.

Chris has been accompanied by Pudsey Bear, can be sponsored on JustGiving ( or by texting PASM99 to 70070, and their progress can be tracked on the Tower Week site (

While preparing to set off, Chris said: “Children in Need keeps children safe and sound while they’re growing up, and PASMA helps keep them that way when they grow up and enter the workplace.

“Each goes that extra mile to safeguard and protect life by doing great work. Both believe it’s what you do that counts, which is why PASMA is supporting this year’s Children in Need appeal through Tower Week.”

Mark Salmon, Managing Director of SSG, met with Chris on his arrival at SSG.  “It was a pleasure to welcome Chris to SSG and provide a contribution towards his collection for Children in Need.  Chris and the team should be commended for their efforts in raising tower safety awareness and supporting this excellent charity.”
