And now a special outdoor showing of the classic musical at North Walsham's Memorial Park will raise money to help a family get to Disney World.

The free-entry screening will take place on Saturday, August 11, organised by Cafe Kitale owner Robert Scammell, in aid of Stalham 20-year-old Sophie Kennedy.

Sophie has had kidney problems her whole life, needs dialysis three times a week and is currently awaiting a transplant.

Her mum Diane Kennedy, who works at the cafe, said: 'As a family we've never been able to do anything because every other day she has to be back in hospital.'
