Mundesley’s Got Talent boosts children’s hospital

Singers, dancers and tug of war teams all pulled together at a North Norfolk pub to raise funds for a children's hospital.

The Mundesley Ship is doing a big money-spinning year for Great Ormond Street in London which has helped the relative of a staff member.

Ten of them will be walking up Snowdon in September, but landlord Matt Galasky cannot go - so he staged a fund-raising weekend at the pub instead, which looks set to top more than �1,000.

A Mundesley's Got Talent show on the Saturday saw a string of acts trying to impress a panel of judges with the pub's 19-year-old trainee chef Tyrone Bowles winning the event with his version of Shaggy's Angel.

Second was Mr Galasky's nine-year-old daughter Ellie Louise with Kesha's Tick Tock and third Charlie Fisher singing Warwick Avenue by Duffy. Other acts included a duo doing a comedy routine making jam sandwiches. Local band The Reckoning provided the evening entertainment, and on Sunday eight teams battled it out in tug of war, which was won by the Black Swan from North Walsham. Afternoon music was by local singer Dale Bullimore compered by Heart radio presenter Rob Chandler.
