The Hampshire branch of environmental charity the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) has recruited a new Chief Executive to work with volunteers campaigning to protect the county’s countryside.

Charlee Bennett joins CPRE Hampshire from Save the Children’s head office in London, where she led on the UK Poverty campaign. Prior to that, she worked for World Animal Protection on global campaign mobilisation. She holds a degree in Oceanography with Physical Geography from the University of Southampton.
 
Charlee Bennett said: “I'm looking forward to working with CPRE Hampshire staff, volunteers and the Hampshire public to protect and maintain our beautiful surroundings. We believe that together we can protect our natural environment, keeping Hampshire a place to work, relax, recreate and enjoy for future generations."

CPRE Hampshire Chairman, Dee Haas said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Charlee to the CPRE team here in Hampshire. Charlee’s experience with volunteers, team management and campaigning offer us an opportunity to work with our many supporters and members to more effectively defend the countryside we love”.

Charlee starts work at CPRE Hampshire’s branch office in Winchester on 3 July 2017. Alongside campaigning, she will be responsible for fundraising and the management of the branch. She will lead on the charity’s campaign to create a new Green Belt in South Hampshire. This campaign sits within its wider strategy for the whole of Hampshire. The ‘Hampshire Strategic Vision’ supports CPRE Hampshire’s mission to defend the countryside from damaging development and promote sustainable development.
