March Lions have installed an honours board at Young People March to recognise outstanding volunteering by young people.

The board has been set up in memory of the late Mary Buckley who was an enthusiastic Lions member.

YPM managers picked Beau Bain, of March, as the centre’s first young person to be recognised for going above and beyond their commitment at the centre.

Each year a young person will be picked to have their name recorded on the Honours Board and will each receive £50 donation from the Lions over the next 10 years.

Mrs Buckley left Lions a legacy which was agreed should be used to encourage the young people of March.

In addition to the Honours Board, made by Lions member John Potter, they have also instigated an annual award for March Boxing.

One is a shield to be held for one year, and the other an annual replica for the Young Clubman of the year, an additional award.
