As part of honouring the legacy of my late husband Gordon Patterson and his impact on the media and advertising industry in South Africa is peers created a trust for students who study media and advertising, in 2016.

The trust funds the studies of talented students who are previously disadvantaged. And that’s the legacy that’s been left behind.

to build and invest back into the education of the next generations of talented young people who will work in Gordon’s industry. If you would like to contribute to the education of these students in South Africa follow the links to the not-for profit organization website to find our more.

If you would like to donate and find out more please reach out to the Advertising Media Association of South Africa via Linkedin AMASA JHB.

When you help someone to have access to education you are giving them a hand up in life, not just a hand out. An education is the one gift that keeps giving, it cannot be taken away from someone. It unlocks the door to the rest of the world and a future with unliminted possibilities.” – Sonja Basson
