Unity & AMSA team up for testing

Unity and the Andover Men’s Shed Association (AMSA), locally based charities have collaborated to develop a Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing) service which is being launched this week.

With qualified PAT testers from the Andover Men’s Shed Association, this service is being offered to help ensure office and kitchen appliances are regularly tested as required for health and safety purposes.

Jim Howcroft from the Andover Men’s Shed Association said, “We are pleased to be able to work with Unity to provide this new service.  It is an opportunity not only for charities but for businesses to use a service which will be invested back into the local community as all proceeds will be shared between the two charities.”

Terry Bishop, Unity Chief Executive said, “Health and Safety is such a major concern for all organisations, to be able to work with AMSA on this way, means we are able to offer a required service at a very competitive rate and this will also enable both organisations to become sustainable in the future.  We are simply delighted to have the opportunity to work with these gentlemen in this way.”
