Due to the unusual circumstances brought about by the pandemic, Cllr Budden also agreed to continue as chairman until May 2021. Cllr Adam Carew will also remain as vice chairman.
Cllr Budden said: “I am delighted to be able to hand over two cheques of £1,425 to the Crossover Youth Centre in Liss and Dementia Friendly Petersfield.These are wonderful charities that do so much good on a day-to-day basis in East Hampshire.”
Cllr Budden’s chosen charities for the coming year are the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and The Rosemary Foundation.
