TV star takes part in Norwich charity bus pull

BBC TV presenter Carol Bundock turned bus driver over the weekend as part of a charity event in the city.

Carol, who has worked for the BBC since 1989, was in the driving seat of a bus that relied on people power rather than horse power to get it going. The Norfolk Deaf Association held a sponsored bus pull outside the Forum on Saturday to raise money and awareness about the charity.

Staff from the audiology department at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital joined members of the charity for the event which kicked off at 10am.

Carol said: 'I was very happy to support the Norfolk Deaf Association and rather worried they had to pull not only the bus, but me as well. They did very well.'

The Norfolk Deaf Association supports adults with hearing loss throughout Norfolk by running free drop-in clinics across the county, by visiting patients in their own homes and by running mobile clinics in a specially designed bus – the Listen Here! Bus.
