Two charities received donations on Saturday from March Town Cricket Club. 

Club president Les Mills £372 to Ben Pyle for Scotty's Little Soldiers. 

The monies were raised at a T/20 Cricket match held in June 2019. 

The monies were raised by members supporting a draw arranged by Terry Hunt. 

The charity provides Christmas and birthday presents and holidays to children who have lost a parent serving their country. 

It was set up in memory of Corporal Lee Scott a former Neale Wade pupil who was killed in Afghanistan in 2009. 

The second presentation was for £400 to YPM (Young People March) to the centre managers Jayne Manders and Sarah Housley-Stott.
