Gill shares her wealth of experience in producing world class live events with SupaJam students and often invites them along to her festivals as her guest or to gain work experience.
“I have been be fortunate enough to have first hand experience of what SupaJam has meant to the kids who have been part of this fantastic opportunity for change. Nick, David and the team have worked tirelessly to give some meaning to the lives of these young people who really needed help.
As a mentor to the students, I feel I have been able to see first hand what being part of this journey has enabled them to achieve.
As events organisers, we have been able to give temporary work to some of the students to further their skills. I have seen students who started the courses, at first unable to engage eye to eye when having a conversation, to become confident young people eager to learn. This is down to the dedication of SupaJam, an organisation I have a huge amount of respect for.”

Sonia Leigh has visited the SupaJam students several times, offering industry insight and workshops in song writing.
"I have had some of the best moments of my career spending time working with the SupaJam students and staff. The value of this programme brings to the table to provide music education and a creative home for individuals, who may not have had the opportunity otherwise, is priceless. Witnessing the students in action at the SupaJam stage at the 2018 Black Deer festival so so rewarding to be a part of. I look forward to the future of the programme and the continuing positive impact it has on each student."

“SupaJam is an incredibly uplifting and inspiring place. The kids are all great, and clearly being encouraged and motivated to achieve in a way few of them could probably even imagine. It deserves all the support it can get.”
