StarJam’s per­form­ers ready for show

Bay News - - YOUR GARDEN -

StarJam Tau­ranga re­turns this week­end, giv­ing young peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties the chance to un­leash their tal­ents.

Lo­cal Star­jam­mers have been prac­tis­ing atweek­ly­work­shops all year— singing, danc­ing and drum­ming— in the lead-up to the in­spi­ra­tional an­nual show­case.

The idea is to en­able young peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties feel em­pow­ered, sup­ported and ex­tended where the fo­cus is on what you can achieve, not what you can’t.

StarJam is also held in Auck­land, Hamil­ton, Welling­ton, Wairarapa and Christchurch. Pro­ceeds from the event will be do­nated to the StarJam Char­i­ta­ble Trust.
