The charity Scope has appointed a new press and PR manager
following the departure of Gill Amas just before Christmas. The new
incumbent is Christina McGill, who has been doing the job for the last
eight months while Amas was on maternity leave. McGill has been at the
charity since April 1996 as a press and PR officer. Her new job will
involve campaigns to connect the charity’s name in the public’s mind
with equality for people with disabilities and planning for the its 50th
anniversary next year.
