When a Bury St Edmunds window cleaner broke his leg it inspired him to make a quirky dance video in aid of a children’s home in the Philippines.

Andy Conroy, 58, broke his leg after falling off a ladder in January and his predicament - ‘hopping around like a flamingo’ while in hospital - reminded him of Manfred Mann song Pretty Flamingo.

He decided to create an innovative dance video to the tune in aid of the House of Joshua Children’s Home in Cagayan De Oro City which is run by his daughter Mary Conroy-Rendon.

In the video, Mr Conroy dons pink, sports a flamingo on his head and performs fun dance moves on one leg while on crutches. He is supported by the Horringer Court Community Church Youth Group as they dance in Horringer Court Middle School.

Children from the home can also be seen in the video as well as Jasmine Wood, of Bury, who is volunteering there.

Music is performed by Nikki Wiseman, Sam Mandaza and Chris Buisseret, of band Bert’s Beard as well as Pat Brandon, Bernie Plume and Stephen Jarrold.

Mr Conroy, a trustee of The Conroy Rendon Charitable Trust which supports the home, said: “We premiered it (on Sunday morning) at the church and it went down a storm. There’s quite a lot of people who watched it online and it seems to have been well received.”

It is part of the Trust’s Pink For A Purpose campaign, #wevebeenpinked, so the home can extend to take on more girls. To donate visit www.conroyrendoncharity.co.uk
