Former SANTA chairperson passes away

Well-known Hermanus resident Pat van Schoor passed away earlier this week at the age of 83.

Over the years Van Schoor has touched many lives through her diverse activities and contribution to many causes. For years she played a leading role in the South African National Tuberculosis Association (Santa), acting as SANTA chairperson for 10 years. She also served as treasurer and dealt with staff employed at the clinics, reporting to government and organisations. She also kept an eye on the Santa bookshop, arranging for volunteers to assist there.

Many years ago Van Schoor started the Toastmistresses Club, now called Quest. Originally the club concentrated on the development of presentation skills but the focus later shifted to studying interesting topics, having fun and getting to know each other.

Van Schoor shared her love for the game of bridge with numerous people by teaching them the various forms of the game. She was also an avid reader.

She recently received a letter from Overstrand mayor Dudley Coetzee in which he thanked her for the “selfless time and energy” she has shared with the community of Hermanus over the years. “From the work you have done with SANTA and Quest to your perseverance with all the newcomers who have benefited from your expert bridge tuition, nothing goes unnoticed.

“This town is certainly a better place thanks to all your input and enthusiasm. Pat you are indeed a true and worthy Ambassador of Hermanus and I thank you for that,” said the mayor in his letter to Van Schoor.
