Video: Wrinkly Rappers perform at Burnham-On-Sea charity event!

A group of rapping pensioners from Burnham-On-Sea who are set to appear on ITV's Britain's Got Talent later this year performed at a charity fundraising event in the town on Sunday (March 1st). first reported on 'The Wrinkly Rappers' in January as they headed off to perform in front of VIP judges Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden.

The group, comprising Brenda Brooks (56), Marian Bower (66), Belinda Marks (46) and Terry Reynolds (65), appeared at the Sue Ryder shop on Burnham High Street in front of a crowd of around 40 people.

Brenda told "We had a great reception and performed our Wrinkly Rap, Grumpy Old Men Rap, and a new rap called the Whipper Snapper Rapper, which the children joined in with."

Various local musicians have been performing at the shop's busking week in aid of the charity in recent days, including a violinist, guitar player, and local schoolchildren playing African drums on Saturday.

Shop manager Helen Roberts said: "It's been a very successful and busy week, bringing lots of people into the shop and boosting sales. Thanks go to everyone who's supported the event."
