Show The Red Card To Prostate Cancer

2 November 2016

Men around Preston are being given the chance to take a potentially life-saving blood test for just £5.

Taking place in the Invincibles Lounge at Deepdale, The Walnut Group will be hosting the event to try to help show Prostate Cancer the red card. 

The event will take place on Saturday 12th November between 10am and 1pm, and there is no need to book, just turn up on the day. 

Entrance to the lounge is via the South Executive Entrance, and free parking is available on the Invincibles car park on Lowthorpe Road. 

This year, nearly 12,000 men will die in the UK from Prostate Cancer. One in eight will be diagnosed at some stage in their lives and early diagnosis is key to survival. 

For just £5 you can take the test at Deepdale, not bad for saving a life - especially if it's yours!
