GoFundMe campaign launched for sector leader

The fundraiser has been set up for Murray Chapman, a leading hospitality personality.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up for Murray Chapman, a leading hospitality personality. 

Founder of A Passion to Inspire, Chapman (pictured above with chef Cyrus Todiwala) has recently been diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia and motor neurone disease.

The diagnosis means he will need specialist equipment to maintain a quality of life and the GoFundMe campaign has been set up to raise £50,000 to help.

"I can’t put into words the feelings of despair I felt upon hearing the news of Murray’s diagnosis," says Tuesday Foster, a colleague who set up the GoFundMe. "Since then, the enormity of what this means for Murray and his family, and the challenges they will face as this cruel disease takes hold, is starting to become a reality, and one they cannot escape from, but one they must meet head on. They will need to be brave and allow their friends and industry community to help in whichever way they can.

"Our hope for a cure one day will keep us going, but for now looking after Murray's mental and physical health and wellbeing is paramount. Thank you for anything you can donate, it is deeply appreciated."
