What is A Passion to Inspire? 

'A Passion to Inspire', founded by Murray Chapman, is a non-profit making, voluntary initiative, initially developed to bring education and industry closer together - to help and support' the future of tomorrow today'. The initial format was a competition... but with a fun and supportive element, to nurture, encourage and support students, and give them belief in, and a passion for, their chosen career.
