Our Trustees


        Julie Vincent

I was appointed Chairperson of AidCamps International in September 2015 however my association with the charity extends back over a decade to its inception in 2002/03.

After graduating from the University of London in 2000 with a BA in French and Linguistics I travelled the world on and off for two years participating in various volunteer projects, which inspired me to become involved in the setting up of AidCamps. 

I am AidCamps' only remaining founding trustee. I established partnerships in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Cameroon and was the project leader for 20 Group AidCamps in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Cameroon and Kenya from 2003-2009. 

Although I no longer run Group Projects I am still very much involved in the running of the Charity whilst working in the Reinsurance department of a well known Insurer in London, in addition to bringing up my three young boys.


          Sarah Horne

I graduated from Birmingham University with an Honours Degree in Money, Banking & Finance and then spent four years working for accountancy practices in the North West of England.  I have spent most of my subsequent career working as an accountant and tax adviser for a well known retailer.

I have been the Treasurer of AidCamps since September 2012, but previously worked with the charity providing accounting support.     


            Janet Clark

I have worked as consultant in research and evaluation for over a decade specialising in undertaking research with marginalised groups. I currently work for VSO in their Impact and Accountability team taking a lead role on evaluation.

I have an MA in social research and evaluation, a post graduate certificate in conflict and development and am currently undertaking an MSc in development.

My first AidCamp was in Cameroon in 2005 and since then I have undertaken an additional three AidCamps in Malawi, Sri Lanka and a return trip to Cameroon.

I travel a lot for both work and pleasure, am a keen photographer and enjoy independent and art film.


             Gilly Wright

I first volunteered on a Group AidCamp in 2004 in Tamil Nadu, India having spotted a small advert in a magazine offering short term volunteering. I'd always wanted to work in developing countries but had never the time or resources to go for 6 months, which was all that was available at the time.

Since then, I have been on several AidCamps adding Nepal and Cameroon to my list. I became a Group Co-ordinator in 2009 and have since lead several projects in Cameroon.

My day job is energy and environmental management and I have worked in the field of corporate sustainability. 

As a trustee, I would like to increase the reach of Group and Independent AidCamps to new audiences of people to increase our impact with the communities with whom we work. 


            Julie Cotton

I am a Registered Nurse currently working for the Care Quality Commission inspecting care homes. I have an MSC in Health and Social Care Policy.

I first became involved in AidCamps when my daughter attended an AidCamp in Cameroon and in 2011 I went on an AidCamp to Cameroon with her. Since then I have also been on a project to Nepal with my husband.

In recent years I have worked in a voluntary capacity with Spreading Health, a charity which trains local health professionals in the developing world.

I enjoy a busy social life and spend most of the summer weekends away in our VW Campervan, Bertha. We also have quite a menagerie of animals including dogs, horses and a European Eagle Owl called Oberon. I enjoy reading, horse riding, skiing and gardening in my spare time!


            Bryan Stevens

I was Chair of Trustees of Aidcamps International for approximately six years, and have been on six Group Aidcamps in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Cameroon. For nine years I was a Trustee of Practical Action.

My working background is in Human Resources in the corporate world. For the last 12 years of my career, I was Director of the Involvement and Participation Association (IPA). I retired thirteen years ago, and now enjoy long-distance walking, cycling, reading and listening to classical music. I am happily married with three children and live in London.
