Posties are asking people to keep an eye out for them this week to support their fundraising efforts.
About 20 members of staff based at the St Ives sorting office wore bandanas on Friday (March 6) for the Brain Tumour Charity’s Bandanas for Brain Tumours Day.
Postman Colin Rich asked colleagues to join him after being inspired by Sophie Morris, a friend of his wife, Kirsty.
Mum-of-three Sophie, of Whitecross, St Ives, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour in 2013.
Mr Rich said: “We are lucky because we deliver to every address in St Ives, Somersham, Colne, Bluntisham, and Needingworth.
“So we were easy to spot and people knew roughly what time to expect us.
“I thought it would be a convenient way for people to join in and donate.
