New world record for Norwich as father sings for 24 hours to help hospital
A Norwich father broke a world record for endurance singing this morning to raise money for the hospital which saved his sick daughter.
Julian Hill, from Tolwin Walk, sung for 24 hours, 21 minutes and 25 seconds before hanging up the microphone on song number 314 at the Ambassador's Bloomsbury Hotel in London.
Mr Hill's one-year-old daughter Amelia was diagnosed with a rare heart condition at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
She had life-saving surgery at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, prompting the 29-year-old TV editor to raise money while breaking a record.
