Mini Market on the Sea Point Promenade 2020

Join us for a fundraising Mini-Market on the Sea Point Promenade on Sunday, 15th November 2020! The event will mark the start of the latest chapter in the life of the Mini Cooper that was set alight in Mouille Point in the early hours of 6 May 2020. This was the culmination of many attempts to stop Peter and Lesley Wagenaar from providing food to homeless and vulnerable people during the height of the pandemic, despite the fact that they had a permit to do so.

Rather than deterring the Wagenaars (who continued to provide daily home-cooked meals, made with love), the Mini Meltdown became a beacon of love, light and hope that communities can work together in a crisis. Instead of stopping people from giving, it inspired others who wanted to help through the Covid-19 pandemic. Love always wins!

The Mini has now undergone a complete ‘Makeover’ and has been transformed into a beautiful artwork by the talented Alicia McFadzean (Cheeky Observer). In its new life, it will function as a mobile artwork, a ‘medium’ for conflict resolution and a ‘vehicle’ to raise funds for social welfare enhancing projects. The Mini will be unveiled at the market, which is a fundraiser for the Seaboard-Gugulethu CAN partnership.

What’s on sale?

The Mini-Market will offer books, houseplants, clothes, masks, Mini Meltdown apparel, Xmas decorations and jewellery, as well as freshly baked goods, and organic vegetables from local farmers.

Where does the money go?

All funds will go to supporting joint activities by the Seaboard and Gugulethu CANs, Souper Troopers and #MiniMeltdown. This includes the provision of food and clothing alongside psychosocial support to vulnerable Seaboard residents and Gugulethu households. This partnership has built a bridge of solidarity between different areas of Cape Town, working towards a better, safer, less dividedcity.
