PSA Testing events

To raise awareness of prostate cancer and the importance of early detection, we arrange PSA testing events.  At these events, Isle of Wight men can book an appointment for a simple blood test which will inform them of the health of their prostate.  The size and frequency of events vary but this year, 2021, we have arranged 4 events and hope to enable the testing of around 1000 men. We are helped to control the costs by many partners but each test still costs around £14. However, in these days of COVID-19 and PPE requirements for phleboomists, volunteers and customers, the cost projected is £16 per test.  Overall we expect each testing day to cost £4,000, a total spend in 2021 of £16,000.

Thanks from IWPCSG

We are extremely grateful for all of your donations, no matter how large or small.  All of our trustees and volunteers give their freely to help in the fight against prostate cancer. 

Our donations come from many sources.  They vary from large groups and organisations to individuals and their families.  The donations vary but include:

  • thousands of pounds from our partner organisations to help us run PSA testing events  

  • men who have had a PSA blood test at one of our events and have been kind enough to donate the cost of the test to our funds

  • small children who give their pocket money to support a father, uncle, grandfather or great grandfather by buying a "Prostate Cancer Man" badge.
