Children's cancer charity Clic Sargent has appointed Lorraine Clifton, former interim chief executive of African health development charity the African Medical and Research Foundation, as its new chief executive.

Clifton, who will start in the role on 3 August, has also been chief executive of three NHS trusts in London and the south east.

Third Sector reported last month that the charity had made 20 posts redundant amid concerns over falling income and dwindling reserves.

In a statement, Clifton said: "After the challenges of the economic slowdown, which Clic Sargent reacted to in a forward-thinking and determined way, I believe the charity is ready to face the challenges and opportunities that the next few years will bring."

Sarah Talbot-Williams, the charity's director of communications and campaigning, has been interim chief executive since April.

A spokeswoman for the charity said Talbot-Williams would revert to her substantive post until September, when she will leave to become head of Above and Beyond Charities, the charitable trust of the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust.
