The UK’s largest disability charity Leonard Cheshire has lost its
head of press, John Skillicorn-Aston, who has left to take up a new role
at the Royal School for the Blind. The two hundred-year-old charity has
recently rebranded as seeAbility. Communications director Peter Maple is
currently looking to recruit a direct replacement. Skillicorn-Aston
joined seeAbility last week as PR and appeals head, reporting to PR and
appeals director David Ireland. The post, which oversees a team of nine,
had been vacant since the departure of Sarah Aitkinson in the summer.
