Professor John de Gruchy, a founding member and prime mover in the Hermanus Varsity initiative, turns 80 on 18 March. In honour of his birthday and in recognition of the energy and effort he has put into helping realise the vision of a varsity, we ask all readers of this newspaper to contribute a multiple of 80 to the Hermanus Varsity Trust.
This is a crucial time in the Varsity’s evolution, when it is gearing up to admit students, so the support of the Hermanus community is key. Please give generously, in celebration of John and in support of the Varsity: from R80 to R800, R8 000, or more.
To donate please use any of the following options:
- send your donation to the Hermanus Varsity Trust (registration number IT0018912018C): FNB Account no. 62793321581, branch code 200412
