The Walnut Group, which supports local people affected by Prostate Cancer, is organising a testing session this Saturday, March 23 at The Greats Room at Preston North End.

It is a simple blood test and no appointments are necessary.

All men over 50 years of age are encouraged to attend, although men who are more susceptible to the disease due to family history or ethnicity and who are over 40 should consider being tested.

The Walnut Group meets at Vine House, Ribbleton on the first Wednesday of every month at 6pm.
