The ambition of Hutt-based performance group Nga Whanau Tokovaru to take their style of dance to Australian audiences was given a boost on Saturday.

A concert in Naenae Community Hall drew a sizeable crowd and raised a good amount of money to go towards trans-Tasman travel costs, organiser Herena Meteka told Hutt News .

Tokovaru (''varu'' is ''eight'' in Cook Islands Maori) comprises members of eight extended families who are associated with the Hutt Valley Cook Island Youth group.

Saturday's concert Te Ura Maeva (''a big gather of happiness'') lived up to its name, with a variety of performers including Nga Ngauru o Tamarua from Wainuiomata and Pomare School's band contributing their talent.
