Martin Groenewald Fund

Friends of Martin,

We look back on two weeks of shock and high drama, but all in all, we stand in amazement about the goodness and favour that we experienced during this time. Our hearts are filled with a deep sense of thankfulness which words cannot describe- thankfulness for the miracles of our Heavenly Father which we could experience and the wonderful support of friends. We cannot even start to mention names, but would want to, through this medium, say: Thank you so much.

We have been approached by people who want to contribute financially towards Martin’s future medical and rehabilitation costs. We do not have a medical fund. We are advised that, depending on Martin’s recovery process, it could amount to a substantial amount, which could include further orthopaedic visits, x-rays, physio- and biokineticist treatment, etc. After consideration it was decided to start a fund to provide in this regard, the idea being that, should there be surplus funds after Martin’s treatment, which we trust will be the case, such fund will continue to render assistance in similar instances. The fund is subject to independent audit, and any donor is entitled to inspection thereof.

The particulars are as follows:
Martin Groenewald Players Fund
Standard Bank, Humansdorp
Savings Account number 1865 189 19
Branch code 050015
Any enquiries, please feel free to contact Adriaan at 082 579 0505 or 042 291 1634 (w).
