PUBLIC SECTOR: Leonard Cheshire loses head of press

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.
