A family has spoken of their grief at the death of a married mother-of-two who died after being hit by a car while out for her morning jog. Charity boss Aimi McCaffery was described as “a wonderful mother, wife, daughter and loving friend” by family members.
Aimi, who was chief executive of the Loughborough charity TwentyTwenty, lived in Cropwell Butler in Nottinghamshire. She had been jogging on Cropwell Road just outside the village, near the A46, when she was hit by a BMW at about 8.50am on Sunday.
Police and paramedics were called but Aimi died from her injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene, NottinghamshireLive reported. She leaves behind a husband and two children.

In a statement, Aimi’s family said: “We feel like our world has collapsed. Aimi was the bedrock of our family and our grief is incomparable. We would like to ask for privacy as we come to terms with this horrific loss.”
TwentyTwenty runs the Love4Life campaign in Loughborough, which provides sex and relationship education to youngsters aged 11 to 19. Jonathan Kerry, chair of TwentyTwenty said in a statement on the charity’s website: “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.”
A tribute from Aimi’s workmates added: “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.”
