Street Store

The annual Street Store in Durban is happening on Friday, 16 June 2017, and all involved are gearing up for another remarkable day of dignified shopping for the materially poor in our city.

Grace Family Church and Grace Aid, in partnership with the Denis Hurley Centre, will be hosting the Pop Up Street Store from 8.30am-12.00pm at 2 Cathedral Road in the Durban CBD (Denis Hurley Centre).

Grace Family Church is calling for donations of like-new clothing, shoes, and accessories for all ages, as well as non-battery operated toys for kids. Your collections can be dropped off at the Grace uMhlanga, Riverside or Ballito church campuses. There will be a huge shipping container, sponsored by Container World, based at Grace uMhlanga and the target is to fill it to the brim with donated clothing. Key sponsor JAM Clothing will also have drop-off boxes at select stores around Durban, namely Hillcrest, Amanzimtoti, Crescent and Smith street. There will also be an opportunity to assist in sorting the donated items at Grace Family Church (uMhlanga) on Monday 14 May, between 4-8pm.

On the day of the Street Store, clothing is hung up and displayed for shoppers to browse and select what they need and like, as adults and children off Durban’s streets are provided an opportunity to fulfill a basic need. ‘The focus of the Street store is to give dignity as people choose their clothing, enjoy a meal, have their hair cut and are blessed by volunteers whose sole aim is to let each person know they are significant and welcome”, says Dave Richter of Grace Aid.

The Durban Street Store is an event that brings people together, and extends hope and generosity to those in need. Will you join the movement?

50 Shades of Pink

When it comes to wine, especially rosé, there are loads of guys who won’t touch it. Maybe it’s because they prefer a beer or a more refined spirit; maybe it’s because it comes in a stemmed glass, who knows?. What we can say though, based on the confessions of our local wine fundi, Jan-Nico Coetzee, is that even the tough guys have a palate for rose, and thanks to the bottled beauties listed below, we now know just why.
