THE IIE Varsity College Pietermaritzburg has done it.

It has raised R100 000 for the Qhubeka Project, ending in the top three in monies­ raised out of the eight IIE Varsity College­ campuses around South Africa.

The Qhubeka Project is IIE’s Varsity College national 2017 CSI initiative.

Through multiple events and many people offering their time and assistance, the Pietermaritzburg campus’s R100 000 will get 38 bicycles to give to disadvantaged children and adults, enabling them to pursue either their schooling or their career­.

Graham Bennetts, IIE Varsity College Pietermaritzburg Principal said: “There are so many people who could use a ‘foot up’ as far as their business and education is concerned, and we are exceptionally proud that we can donate R100 000 to this very worthy cause.

“Cast your mind to those children who can now cycle to school or those entrepreneurs who can transport their goods to market.

“Out of all the IIE Varsity College campuses around South Africa, the Pietermaritzburg­ campus has raised the most money.”

The original goal for the Pietermaritzburg campus was to raise enough to purchase 25 bicycles, but never did the Pietermaritzburg campus imagine they would far surpass their goals and raise an additional 13 bicycles.

The IIE Varsity College Pietermaritzburg would like to thank those who dedicated their time and effort into assisting with the planning and organising of events, and the continued support throughout the year.

The campus is excited about surpassing all CSI goals in future. - Supplied.
