On perhaps the hottest day this year, the monthly newspaper collection took place in City Road Car Park, March, by the local Rotary Club.
What made this memorable was that a March Citizen decided to start donating her newspapers as a result of reading that the monies raised supported the Annual Kids Out Project, where some two dozen youngsters were given a day’s visit to Pigeons Farm at Thorney. That included entry, lunch, transport and pocket money. Such was the generosity of this lady, she donated there and then a large bank note towards next year’s outing, which was gratefully received by president Peter Bennett.
An unexpected and very generous act, for which we express public thanks.
