Chapman Ventilation - Main Sponsor

I'm very excited to announce that Run Geordie Run has a main sponsor for the Stage X campaign with all proceeds going to St. Benedict's Hospice. A huge and sincere thank you goes to Chapman Ventilation for their continued generous support which now goes back 10 years to the time of the run across the USA. Believe me, that's a lot of support and has made a massive difference to the amount raised for local good causes.

As well as numerous kind charitable donations over the years, regular readers will know that Chapman Ventilation were responsible for funding the build of the Chapman Ventilation Around The World Buggy (Chappy for short) in 2017. Of course, Chappy will be called back into action when it's safe to resume the run around the world proper in Ukraine. In the meantime, I'm very proud to have the Chapman Ventilation logo on my running kit and it will feature across all of Run Geordie Run social media.  

Chapman Ventilation was founded in 1967 by Vin and Fran Chapman as a general ventilation business, fitting fans in homes and industrial settings. Within a year they were commissioned by Pizza Express to install a canopy and ductwork in one their very first restaurants. 

In 1998, Ant and David Chapman took over the business from their parents, bringing a new, ambitious vision and direction. They now boast their own in-house manufacturing capability in a state of the art 40,000 sq ft facility and head office in Welwyn Garden City. Chapman Ventilation serve many sectors with their products and services including hospitality, hotels, airports, industrial, commercial and education.

Once again, a massive thank you to Chapman Ventilation for their very kind support of Run Geordie Run and the 250 mile Stage X which gets underway on July 12th 2021 at Bamburgh Castle.

Please tune in tomorrow for news of the next kind Run Geordie Run sponsor.
