The Lowvelder

Penryn Autumn Market aims to support local

-

MBOMBELA - As at most high schools, Penryn College upholds the tradition that the grade 11's raise funds to support the matric farewell. Due to Covid-19, options in terms of fundraisin­g events or any opportunit­ies to raise money are limited. From there the idea of a market filled with different traders from the Lowveld - who would come and exhibit their products and services came about.

The Penryn Christmas Market was for many years a Lowveld legacy, this served as an inspiratio­n for the Penryn Autumn Community Market; a market to revive the seasonal event. Peta de Wet, a profession­al market organiser, guided the group through the process and booked the traders. The event was held on

May 29 at the school.

“It was a pleasure to have a profession­ally organised event, to support the local traders, to come together as a community in a safe outdoor environmen­t and all at the same time to assist the grade 11 fundraisin­g,” said Franklin Darteh, a Penryn maths teacher and grade 11 fundraiser organiser.

“I am really looking forward to the next Penryn market.”
