This June the 3 Hammers Golf Complex in Coven will invite men from all over the region to roll up their sleeves and get on course for a healthy future. On June 14th, the innovative venue will be hosting free Prostate Cancer testing in partnership with The Graham Fulford Charitable Trust (GFCT).
Having heard that a simple 3 minute blood test can identify the presence of Prostate Cancer and ultimately save lives Ian Bonser (main image), owner of the 3 Hammers and recent winner of the England Golf Lifetime Achievement award, was inspired to run a special event offering PSA testing. He explains, “Tens of thousands of men come through the doors here, so we are very aware of the impact Prostate Cancer can have. Early diagnosis is essential so when I heard of the work Graham and his charity do I was keen to offer the free blood tests here. We want as many people as possible to have access to this important test. In just 3 minutes they can save your life.”
Thanks to the generous support of local businesses including Lancaster Jaguar Landrover and Lloyds Bank, free PSA testing will be available to 1000 men. The event is also supported by Tettenhall Rotary Club and Wolverhampton Prostate Cancer Support Group. Graham Fulford is delighted to be working in partnership with the venue and hopes that this will become a regular event, “We are really pleased to be able to offer our PSA blood testing at 3 Hammers because it’s right at the heart of the community. Although the PSA test is quick and effective it is only by working in partnership with people like Ian that we can really encourage more men to take the test, so we’re really grateful that he has had the vision to implement this partnership.”
There will also be a Prostate Cancer Awareness Golf Day running during the day. Teams of 4 are invited to compete in the Golf Day, which promises to offer contemporary and traditional golf challenges showcasing the very best of the facilities available at the award winning Complex.
