Earlier this year, a student posted on Bristol University’s "confession" Facebook page called Bristruths about Herman Gordon.
"The Jamaican cleaner in the med library is the jolliest man I have ever met, he makes me smile even when I’m in the deepest depths of revision or trying to be, if you want a reason to smile go talk to him for a min or two," the post said.
Soon after, a crowdfunding page was launched to send Herman to Jamaica so he could visit family for the first time in over a decade.
More than 230 people had donated to the cause and Herman was gifted £1,500.
A video of Herman breaking down in tears when he was told about the trip in June went viral.
On September 18, Bristruths posted an update on Herman's vacation:
"We're delighted to say that Herman loved his holiday at a five star resort in Jamaica along with his wife Denise. They celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary there and have gone on to visit family in Kingston.
Herman has told us: 'God bless you all. Everybody will see this and think that I'm a trillionaire' whilst Denise has said: 'I just wanted to say thank you to all the University of Bristol students for this gift that they have given to me and Herman'."
