At Exeter Respect Festival

Devon Centocow Link joined Exeter Respect to mark 25 years freedom from apartheid in South Africa

Exeter Respect is an annual celebration of diversity, culture and music which takes place in a large public park near the centre of Exeter. Stalls of food, from many countries, music from around the world playing on five separate stages and stalls of information and voluntary groups cluster and reverberate across the park.

Devon Centocow Link with their own celebration of achievement, gaining charitable status, occupied 2 gazebos amongst a throng of celebratory events.

Respect Stand

Despite periods of torrential rain children visited Jane in her story tent. The tent displayed her backdrop of the landscape beyond Esibonvini and she told favourite South African stories. The favourite was always going to be ‘Unanana and the Elephant’. Lindiwe, the Persona Doll was there to show children her journey book of photos of her visit to the Centocow area.

Steve, assisted by Esther and Di, displayed photographs and descriptions of the area and explained the purpose of our charity to help fund training and educational resources in this area of KwaZulu-Natal.  Nonhlanhla’s beautiful rugs and the jewellery and beadwork of Prisca and her friends were on sale as well.
