After responding to a quick questionnaire,  they joined a short queue and minutes later were having their blood sample taken.

Four stations were set up and manned by the volunteers at the Graham Fulford Charitable Trust to take blood samples.

A quick but professional process enabled 280+ men to have a blood sample taken.

Most men were in and out of the testing stations in minutes.

Black men have a three times higher risk of getting prostate cancer than white men of the same age, but the risk for Asian and Chinese men is lower.
