2017 - A year to celebrate

20th December 2017

As 2017 comes to an end we have so much to celebrate, from the increasingly popular Monthly Support Group Meetings at the Junction to our annual 6th PSA Testing Roadshow which had a audience that filled Christ Church who listened to and interacted with Mr Julian Shah and Mr Alvan Pope our talented Medical Advisors, before almost seventy men gave bloods for the PSA Test.

On a lighter note our November Celebration Lunch filled the Bedford Arms Restaurant with happy chatting smiling faces who enjoyed the delicious meal and the entertainment that followed.

Yes the FOPS are alive and kicking, still keen to make middle aged men aware of regularly testing their prostates, and to support those who are fighting prostate cancer. Our next 7th PSA Testing Roadshow at Christ Church has been booked for Monday 16th April and the next Support Group Meeting is on Wednesday 10th April at The Junction Christ Church.

I wish you all a Truly Wonderful Christmas and a Delightful New Year.
