London to Brighton: Join Justice Edwin Cameron and Prof Wim
19 September @ 5:00 am - 6:00 pm
On Sunday, 19 September 2021, Justice Edwin Cameron, Chancellor of Stellenbosch University, will be joining our Rector and Vice-chancellor, Prof Wim de Villiers, on the iconic 55-mile cycle ride from Clapham Common in South London to the seaside town of Brighton to raise funds to support academically strong but financially disadvantaged Matie students, and they want you to join them!
Both the Chancellor and the Vice-chancellor will be leading their own teams and will compete to see who can raise £10 000 first.
Will you help them to reach this target?

We are asking all cyclists to commit to raising £500 towards the target. We will help you to get there through our online fundraising platform for this event.
The funds raised from this event are for the UK/EU Bursary Fund, which aims to give academically gifted but financially disadvantaged students the opportunity to pursue success at our institution and reach their full potential. The total target of £20 000 will provide at least three students with a full bursary that covers tuition, housing, food and textbooks.
Join a team now. You do not need to be a Matie to be part of a team – invite your friends, family and colleagues to cycle for this great cause.
