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.
