I set up CPA back in 1995 as a response to my first visit to Africa. Since that first visit, it has been a thrill and a challenge to be involved with African communities who are fighting for a better life for themselves and their families. There have been successes and difficulties along the way but the resilience and humanity (and sometimes inhumanity) of Africa never ceases to amaze.

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.
