Bobby is being supported by local dementia services and the Colchester Dementia Action Alliance will be in attendance at the upcoming Mens' Health Day at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Taking place on Thursday 12th April, the event sees CHAPS and the Dementia Action Alliance offer NHS health checks, prostate cancer screening, blood pressure checks, aortic aneurysm screening as well as physio and sports injury assessments.

The health checks are available for men aged 40-74 who are not already on treatment for a heart condition, blood pressure or high chloesterol, kidney disease or diabetes, or who have already had an NHS health check in the last five years.

Prostate cancer screening is for men aged 40 plus, and strongly recommended for black African and Caribbean men and men with a family history of prostate cancer or breast cancer.
