A hard-working charity clerk has been awarded a ‘token of appreciation’ after working for 50 years on behalf of the Chatteris Feoffee.

Brian Hawden was presented the award from the charity chairman, Richard Angood at a recent annual general meeting in the town.

The charity was established before 1773 but no records were kept until the first minute book, which is held at the Chatteris Museum and dates from 1773 to 1847.

They help to fund local groups and charities that run activities for the elderly, disabled, disadvantaged and young people.

The charity has recently moved to support and supplement the Chatteris Food Bank Scheme and help those who have fallen on difficult times.

A spokesman for the charity committee said: "We wish thank the clerk, Brian Hawden, for working on our behalf for over 50 years.

"We are always looking for interested and knowledgeable people to join the trustees so that 'poor and needy' problems can be considered for the provision of help in the town."
