Philip Chapman and his children are pleased to announce that this month they are launching the Alyson Chapman Fund in loving memory of Alyson, amazing mother to Chloe, Jess, Ellie and Harry and Philip’s wife.
Besides being a passionate mother Alyson also enjoyed walking Millie our chocolate lab on the Downs, the arts and loved spending time with friends and family. When Alyson and Philip met she’d been the top sales person for Hallmark Cards for two years running and had been head hunted by Andrew Brownsword. However her wish was to start a family and Philip, the boy from Essex, feels he was lucky enough to punch above his weight after Alyson rejected proposals from a multi-millionaire and a racing driver.
A mother of four, Alyson enjoyed supporting children especially in her working life as a Classroom Assistant in St Peter and Pauls, Cotham, Bristol.
The family are actively fundraising for the Alyson Chapman Fund which will support projects:
- for children and young people,
- for homeless people and
- for people with life-limiting illnesses.
The family kick-started their fundraising with an extravaganza at Bristol Zoo in June which raised over £2,500 for charity.
Anyone wishing to make a donation can either do so online or at four collection points – The Nuffield Gym, St Peter and St Pauls Primary School, The Clifton Club and the Catholic Cathedral on Pembroke Road.
