TRUST AMBASSADORS

JP Duminy

JP Duminy is an international South African cricketer. The Children’s Hospital Trust’s Ambassador Programme was launched in 2009 with JP being our first official Ambassador.

While he continues to excel internationally on the cricket pitch he is committed to helping sick children who are treated at the Hospital.

This left-handed batsman and right-arm off spin bowler is also the founder of JP21.

Zoë Brown

Zoë Brown is the fresh face and unofficial DIY-er greeting early risers on the feel-good breakfast show, Expresso, on SABC3 every weekday morning from 6am to 9am.

Zoë became an Ambassador for the Trust in 2015 and loves spending time at the Hospital, often being the face in Trust campaigns, videos and photographs.

Greg Bertish

In the year 2000, Greg Bertish picked up a rare tropical bacteria which sadly attacked his heart valves. Over the next seven years, Greg underwent two open heart surgeries and spent nearly 200 days in hospital.

As a heart patient, he has gone on to become SA champ in lifesaving and stand up paddle boarding (SUP), get National colours in SUP, and surf some of the biggest waves in the world.

Greg became a Trust Ambassador in 2016, and has undertaken massive fundraising events for the Red Cross Children’s Hospital, like the Little Optimist sailing expedition and painting the exterior of the Red Cross Children’s Hospital.

Guy McDonald

Guy believes that to be successful we need to have VPR – not CPR or VHS or anything like that, but VPR: Vision, Passion and Resolve.

He is an ambitious, experienced and successful stage and broadcasting professional and joined the Trust’s Ambassador team in 2015.

His passion for the Red Cross Children’s Hospital is infectious. Catch Guy’s Breakfast Show on Magic828, Monday to Saturday from 6am to 9am.

Mujahid Weiner

It’s not easy to get onto the Western Province’s Under 15 rugby team, but for a green-eyed 15-year-old from Mitchell’s Plain, challenges are made to be conquered.

Mujahid Weiner was only six years old when he experienced the trauma of being burned, and received care at Red Cross Children’s Hospital. His dream was always to play rugby, but after years of therapy this didn’t seem possible.

This all changed when he began Grade 7 and the doctors finally gave him the go-ahead. With a lot of practice and dedication, he made it onto the Western Province rugby team.

In 2016 Mujahid knew it was time to give something back the amazing institution that saved his life, and became an Ambassador for the Trust.
