Aimi McCaffery

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our CEO, Aimi McCaffery, following a road traffic incident.  Our hearts go out to her family and close friends; we have lost a much-loved, inspirational and dedicated leader.

Jonathan Kerry, Chair of TwentyTwenty, the charity which runs the Love4Life Programme, said, “Words cannot adequately express our shock at this news.  Aimi was a wonderful person, a joy to know and work with.  She has been the driving force behind the growth of Love4Life in the past two years and was full of ideas for the future.  She has built a wonderful and gifted team and helped to stabilise our finances.  Aimi was eager to learn and establish new networks, all so that we could do more to support the young people in our local communities.”

It is understood that Aimi was knocked down by a vehicle whilst out on her regular morning run on Sunday 15th May; police are investigating the circumstances.

Aimi’s workmates have paid tribute to her:Aimi was an outstanding leader, manager, but also friend. She inspired us, cared for us, made us laugh, and nothing was ever too much trouble for her. Her deep passion for providing support for the young people in our communities was inspirational and will be her legacy.  She genuinely cared for all her employees and was our biggest cheerleader. We will never be able to replace the hole she has left in so many people’s lives, but we will carry her enthusiasm, dedication, values and care with us in her memory. Our thoughts are with her family at this dreadful time.”

We remain 100% committed to the young people we serve and Bethan Stanyon, Programme Manager of Love4Life, will be leading the charity for the time being.
