The president of March Lions Club is raising money for charity by asking people to donate scarves.
President Ian Groome’s Scarves for Cancer initiative is one of his themes for the year, having lost his mum to cancer.
Ian’s wife Jane said: “It’s in everybody’s life these days. It touches everyone one way or another.
“Ian lost his mum to cancer and my daughter lost her father in law as well.”
Ian, along with his family and other Lions, are collecting scarves, ladies and men’s, in aid of several cancer charities.

“If you want to put a message on your scarf in memory of a loved one or for someone who has beaten cancer, then you can,” said Jane.
“The idea is that they will all go on memory tree eventually.”
