  • About the donor

    Jean Audrey Mackenzie

    Jean Audrey Mackenzie bequeathed 50 per cent of her residuary estate to the university to assist handicapped students. Robert Alan ('Alan') Mackenzie was Jean's wife, Alan was active at sport and school until, at the age of 13, he had a spinal tumour resulting in paralysis. Jean left this fund to the university as Alan was grateful for the opportunities the university gave him and he wanted to leave a legacy to assist others to undertake university education.
