The Denis Hurley Street Lit vendors, supported by the booksellers of Mzanzi, held a small private, ten person ceremony in the St Johns Boardroom and Gratitude Garden giving thanks to key stakeholders and partners who had helped and supported them, especially over lockdown.
As large gatherings are not possible at this time, hand painted placards represented the various partners, donors, friends and associates who were not able to be physically present. These were displayed on the boardroom walls. The short ceremony gave thanks to the many men and women who had supported the group during the past few months – in particular St Johns where the book storage is housed, the Denis Hurley Centre, Micromega Publishing through their Made in Chatsworth website for online book sales and Vuleka Centre who accommodated five of the vendors over lockdown. Venue partners, represented by Rowena Govender from Pick n Pay, were also applauded for providing venues for the vendors to trade.
In recent weeks, the vendors have been sorting their book storage, and refurbishing the St John’s garden, which they wanted to show to the partners present.
