Ray Chapman Motors’ ladies get dirty in aid of cancer charity | Ray Chapman Volvo

A seven-strong team of our female employess got dirty and has raised £625 so far for Cancer Research.

Known as ‘Chapman’s Angels’, the girls took part in Race for Life Pretty Muddy York, a 5k muddy obstacle race which took place on Saturday 16th September at York Racecourse.

The team was led by our Corporate Sales Consultant, Debbie Flint, who competed along with six colleagues – Malton Dealership Host, Heather Turnbull, Fleet Sales Administrator, Emma Brown, Accountant, Carla Mitchell, Sales Administrator, Kayleigh Fortner and her sister Leanne Fortner and Fleet Customer Liaison Support, Emma Heselwood.

Commented Debbie; “It was tough going, but extremely enjoyable and whilst we did get extremely dirty, it was great fun and we have already raised an impressive amount of money. We are aiming for £1,500 once all donations have been collected.

“Cancer Research is a fantastic cause. Pretty much everyone is touched by this disease at some stage in their lives. I did this in memory of my dad who I lost far too early to cancer and participating meant so much to all of us who took part.”

Duncan Chapman, Ray Chapman Motors’ Dealer Principal, added: "We are extremely proud of our colleagues who gave it their all and really entered into the spirit of the occasion tackling obstacles like the A-frame and crawling through the mud pit with great enthusiasm. They raised an impressive amount for the charity and their efforts are very much in keeping with our ethos as a business which is to be very much a part of the community.”
