Generous donation to the Selmar Schonland Herbarium

The Selmar Schonland is once again humbled by the generosity of the Skae family. After hearing of our financial woes Russell Skae has made a personal donation of R2 500 to the herbarium towards renovating our faulty fluorescent light fittings. Russell went to school at Kingswood and studied at Rhodes Univeristy and now lives with his family in The Netherlands. He became aware of our plight when his mother Jo, a volunteer in the herbarium (sse post below, 31 May 2011), told him how she mounts plant specimens in the dark on cloudy days.
Many thanks Russell!
