It’s advertised as over 50’s, but I’ve just taken my Grandad and they offered it to me as well, it’s a minimum £5 donation to the charity. It was good to see so many people there.

Having just lost my dad to prostate cancer it is good to see so many taking advantage of this test.

If I had to pay a £5 I'd rather they'd have done the old test than just a simple blood test.

That was a suggested donation to the charity.Most people were happy to donate more than that.

They used to stick a finger up your arse to check for prostate issues, that's about right for a fiver. I wouldn't pay that much for a little prick

They still do. It's a much better test too. But I've covered that before. 

 

Charging someone for a blood test that isn't recommended is profiteering in my book.

How can a suggested charitable donation be described as profiteering?

Well it would be if it wasn't a charity.
