The Windsor Lions have found a new way to keep the fight against prostate cancer going - after lockdown forced members to abandon plans to offer free testing at Windsor Racecourse.

Men's health has become a major part of the community group's work and it has regularly offered free tests to enable men to catch the disease early while it is still treatable. But planned tests due to be offered at the racecourse on April 4 became one of the first victims of lockdown.

So the Lions have teamed up with the charity the Graham Charitable Trust to offer home testing kits.

Lions president Diane Purchase said: "During the Pandemic hundreds of men were unable to gain access to testing for prostate cancer. When the GFCT told us about the new test they have developed and approached us about teaming up with them it seemed like the ideal solution."

The test is sent out in the post after registering online. It involves a simple finger prick test which is then returned by post. Shortly after results will be sent out.

There is a charge of £22.99.

Mrs Purchase said: "We really hope that many men out there will take advantage of this and achieve some peace of mind."
