Land’s End to John O’Groats cycle challenge for Prolift Access MD Andy Pearson

Prolift Access managing director Andy Pearson is swapping powered access for pedal power to complete his latest charity challenge – a gruelling 900-mile cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats.

Andy is riding alongside his friend Nigel Callun to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West, and the pair set off from Cornwall yesterday morning.

They are planning to cover between 80 and 110 miles per day, and aim to reach the tip of Scotland on Sunday, July 19.

All money raised will go towards the charity’s Charlton Farm hospice at Wraxall near Bristol – a cause close to Andy and Nigel’s hearts.

Andy said: “Our good friends Chris and Karen Cox have a lovely grandson called Thomas, who has been diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease.

“The family have been benefitting from the respite at Charlton Farm during Thomas’ illness, so we thought it would be great if we could help support such a great cause while completing a life-long ambition to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats.”

To sponsor the duo during their challenge, visit Andy’s JustGiving page at where you can make an online donation.

PASMA training courses available from Prolift Access

Prolift Access has been named as an official PASMA member and we can now offer certified mobile access tower training alongside our existing IPAF courses.

PASMA training can be provided at one of our approved training centres, or on site if facilities are suitable.

The PASMA Towers for Users course gives candidates the skills to safely assemble, dismantle, relocate and alter a mobile access tower. This one-day course includes both practical and theory sessions.

A half-day PASMA Low Level Access course is also available for workers who use access platforms under 2.5m in height.

This can also be combined with the Towers for Users course if required, and is available to book as a full-day PASMA Combined Low Level Access & Towers for Users course.

For more information on any of our PASMA courses, or to check on availability and make a booking, contact your local depot.
