Men are being urged to get health-wise at a Movember-themed event at the St John’s Information and Support Centre in Balby.

Visitors will be able to get free advice on how to lead a more healthy lifestyle and information on how to check for cancer.

Nurses will also be giving out free heart health checks.

Jo O’Marr, of St John’s Information Service, said: “Men are more likely to be diagnosed with and to die from nearly all common cancers.

“The event will address lifestyle choices that can be made to reduce risk, raise awareness of symptoms and empower men to seek help from their GP earlier.”

The event will be held at the Tickhill Road centre on Thursday, November 27, from 10am to 1pm.

There is also free coffee, tea and biscuits.
