Last year we had a speaker from the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Blood nurses who took prostate Blood tests during our Trade Breakfast. We paid for and had 35 of the builders take the test which we were very happy about. This year we are hoping to pick up more as well as offering the blood test to our staff.

We are planning further activities/games which are simple to achieve for early morning builders at the breakfast and ways to add to our fundraising which is year round at our counter. We have no idea what sort of $ we could raise as this is more us supporting testing so any $ would be a bonus.

Health & Safety is #1 on our values and to this end the results go straight to the Doctor of the person being tested to eliminate any followups being missed by us.We run a Trade builders breakfast several times each year so are experienced in the management of them.
