Nurses trained to test blood are needed to ensure the success of a potentially life-saving event at Windsor's Combermere Barracks next month.
Windsor Lions are running a prostate cancer testing service at the barracks in St Leonard's Road on Tuesday, June 3 between 4.30pm and 8.30pm.
The free blood tests will be performed by trained nursing volunteers, known as phlebotomists - but more are needed.
Organiser Diane Purchase, said: “It is a great problem to have and one we need help to solve. So we are appealing today for trained nursing staff to come forward to offer their services."
Just call 07973 884648 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Men who want to take advantage of the test on the day can just turn up but must bring some photo ID.
The Mayor-elect of Windsor and Maidenhead Cllr Richard Kellaway and the Mayoress Mary-Lou Kellaway will be there at 4.30pm.
