We were delighted to welcome members of Uttoxeter Lions Club into our home, after establishing a relationship that will help hundreds of local men to be screened for prostate cancer.
Barrowhill Hall is part-sponsoring a screening session on Thursday 6th June, the eve of the Lions’ Beer Festival. The event is aimed at those aged 50 and over, and hopes to screen more than 700 men.
“With prostate cancer on the increase, the beer festival which funds the screening has become our biggest fundraiser,” said Lions member, Steve Shields.
“We are extremely grateful to all of the local businesses who support the screening but especially to Barrowhill Hall being one of the main sponsors alongside RBA Wealth Management and JCB. Last year we screened 520 men, we have made provisions to screen 750 this year.”
We treated our Lions guests to a tour of our home and a special lunch.
“We are all extremely impressed with the facilities at Barrowhill Hall,” commented Steve. “As soon as you walk in you receive a warm and positive welcome, its bright, very clean and has a lovely atmosphere. The facilities are modern and its obvious a lot of thought and care has gone into the design aspects. The views over JCB and rolling hills and simply stunning.”
The Uttoxeter Lions prostate screening session will take place on Thursday 6th June 6.00pm -8.30pm at Oldfield’s Sports and Social Club Ground on Springfield Road.
