Dear Vice-Chancellor Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng
We would like to commend you on your amazing UCT Students at our various hotels. They have been so well coordinated, friendly, positive and behaved besides the tragic ordeal that Cape Town has experienced and lost.
BP has approached me at Tsogo Sun to assist in circulating their flyers of their offering of FREE coffee, muffins and pies at Wild Bean Café for the UCT Students that have been affected by the fires.
Please could I ask if these flyers could be given to each Student Residence and perhaps put up in each Jammie shuttle so that we can communicate this free meal option to all who are in need.
Valid while stocks last at BP Newlands, President Motors, Somerset Road, Rondebosch, Pinelands and Cavendish. Bring proof of occupation or student card. Ts and Cs apply.
Yours in good spirit.
