-- A children's tutor has helped raise money for charity with her passion for singing, winning this years Southend Hospital Got Talent competition.
Margaret Meg from Westcliff said "I love singing and always burst into song at any chance I get, but I've always been too shy to enter any competition. It was only when my mum got the application form and told me it was for charity that I decided to enter. The other contestants were amazing but I am happy I won, but I am more happy that I was able to support an amazing cause."
Meg who tutors children in mathematics, and is herself completing her final year of her degree, beat 50 other hopefuls to get to the final and then beat the remaining finalists with her rendition of Hallelujah.
