On Tuesday morning E G Carter & Co Ltd helped raise Prostate Cancer awareness to their site staff at Barnwood Park Arts College.

After getting in touch with Prostate Cancer UK the national charity sent a trained volunteer over to site. The small talk saw a range of carpenters, bricklayers, Site Managers and labourers come along to find out how they can be aware of prostate cancer. The talk lasted around 30 minutes and informed staff about the risks of not getting checked out and their plans for future research.

Dean Lambert, Site Manager for E G Carter & Co Ltd said “Ensuring our site staff are clued up on relevant health issues is important to myself and E G Carter & Co Ltd. We pride ourselves on looking after our employees and this is just one way that we are doing that. Prostate Cancer isn’t something that men regularly talk about so being able to have that chat with them in a professional way is something that could save a life”

In the UK, about 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives. Prostate Cancer UK fund ground breaking research, drive improvements in treatment, and fight injustice in care.
