Music proved to be a uniting force on Saturday night when hundreds turned out for the People Supporting People Benefit Concert.
Performer Jamie Lea, who is involved with the organisation, said concert-goers at the Fryers St carpark venue had a great deal of fun.
‘‘Everyone seemed to be having a really good time — people got up to dance,’’ she said.
Jamie Lea said there was some improvisation and demand for an encore.
She performed two songs and was one of many performers — including Troy McKindley, Seb Nicholson and Eppo Sloots.
‘‘We raised over $3000 and that’s including help from Friar’s Cafe,’’ Jamie Lea said.
She said some of the money raised was going towards building a mobile soup kitchen, so that meals could be delivered more easily in an emergency.
‘‘The whole team are keen to give money to the soup kitchen. It was such a tremendous effort to put on an event of that size.’’
Money was raised through ticket sales and a raffle on the night.
People Supporting People committee member Grant McConkey agreed the concert was a great success.
‘‘We had a lot of local talent — a good variety of singers. Pretty much everyone said, ‘When are you doing the next one?’,’’ he said.
Much like the 16-year-old teenager who outgrows their childhood bedroom, it’s time for Kyabram Fauna Park’s saltwater crocodile Getcha to upgrade to a larger enclosure.
