YOUNG performers from Starcast Performing Arts amazed audiences and also raised much-needed funds for charity.

The Starcast All Together Now Shows in July raised £566 for Ben Pavitts Legacy of Love Fund in aid of Children’s Cancer Charity.

While its show Amaze raised £240 for Make A Wish Charity helping children with life limiting illnesses have life changing experiences.

Principals Sam Holloway, Kiri Golding and Katie Austwick said: “We love that we can give our wonderful Starcast students a platform to perform their fabulous singing, dancing and acting and this is such a wonderful way to raise money to help other children who are supported by these very worthy charities”

More than 180 of Starcast’s students from its schools in Salisbury and Fordingbridge, aged between four and 18 years performed over five days.

There were also guest performers such as our Affinity and Alpha Street Dance Crews.

Starcast says the feedback and support from our parents has been “fantastic”.

One parent said: “It was like watching a West End show, only 100 times more special.”
