March honour walk set to become annual fundraiser after successful first event
AN honour walk in March is set to become an annual fundraiser following the success of the first event on Saturday.
The Royal British Legion March Branch Women’s Section organised the walk, which took place in West End Park.
Walkers were led away by the Mayor of March, Councillor Bernard Keane. Many completed one lap of the park, while some completed two laps.
Women’s section member Pat Case said: “We are so pleased with the turnout and it was particularly great to see so many members of the public. We want to make it an annual event.
“There was a woman aged 90 who joined us, as did a lot of young people with their parents, members of the Air Training Corps and army cadets.”
