‘Samantha did us proud!’ That was the quote from James Alpe, owner of Clitheroe based accident repair and vehicle services centre.
Alpe’s had sponsored Samantha during her journey to the Olympic games and staff at the company were naturally delighted when Samantha took time out of her hectic schedule to visit last week, proudly showing off her silver medal.
‘Samantha has been a true professional throughout’, said James. ‘Always keeping in touch and supporting the company in spite of her hectic schedule. She is truly an inspiration to aspiring young athletes!’
Alpe’s will be hoping for their own medal in September at the annual Bodyshop Awards, not quite as prestigious as the Olympics but certainly the highest accolade in their industry.
