Our concert in Keinton Mandeville Village Hall is being sponsored by Burns The Bread and in support of the Somerset Prostate Support Association (SPSA). We are supporting them because we are a choir for men and they address an important issue particularly relevant to men.

SPSA was originally set up to support men undergoing cancer treatment. In recent years it has come to specialise in running PSA (a blood component which can indicate the presence of cancer) testing events. Since 2018, and allowing for the Covid break, SPSA has undertaken ten events with at least five scheduled for 2024. The typical cost for an event testing 200 men is now £6,000 and finance for these events is raised mostly through organisations like Lions and Rotary Clubs. Experience has shown that ten percent of the men tested probably need lifesaving treatment.
