StarJam­mers thrill mar­ket-go­ers

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS - By OLIVIA SHIVAS

Char­i­ties can ben­e­fit from be­ing in­volved in the mar­kets at Silo Park and StarJam is one of the first to get in­volved.

StarJam­mers put on a show for the pub­lic at the mar­ket on March 7.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion runs per­for­mance work­shops for young peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties, giv­ing them a plat­form to show off their tal­ents.

Kiri David of StarJam says it was a priv­i­lege for the char­ity to be show­cased at the mar­ket.

She could also see the au­di­ence en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence just as much as the young peo­ple from StarJam.

‘‘Af­ter the per­for­mance a lady came up to our stall and told us that she had tears in her eyes watch­ing the per­for­mance. She then signed up to vol­un­teer on the spot.’’

Silo Park team mem­ber Ethan McAu­lay says not only does the char­ity re­ceive a dona­tion from Silo Park, they have ad­ver­tis­ing rights, re­ceive money from pop­corn sales and get to show­case their work in front of up to 5000 peo­ple.

Email mar­ if your char­ity is in­ter­ested in get­ting in­volved.
