Aimee Horton

Digital Communications & Design Officer

I joined CPA in September 2018 and am enjoying every minute of my time here.

Having worked for 20 years in online communities and marketing, along with five years as a parent governor and a Chair for a multi-academy trust in Linconlnshire, I am thrilled to be able to use my skills to support the African communities that CPA work with.

I am married with two sons and when my time isn’t taken up with football (them playing not me!) I enjoy cooking, reading, writing and running…preferably all in the sunshine.
