A St Ives schoolgirl has become a fundraising superstar for less fortunate children.
Madison Glinski set out to raise five hundred pounds for Children's Hospice South West by busking.
The ten year old from Lelant Downs ended up playing her way to THIRTY thousand pounds ... and shows no sign of stopping!
She told Pirate FM: "I just felt like I wanted to use my violin talent to help others. I think after the New Year, after I've taken all of this, in I'll carry on in the summer.
"To raise that much money I'm just amazed that I could do it, because I started off wanting to raise £500."
Mum Theresa said: "Madison's had me bursting with pride since her first busking day, with her target for £500. I'm proud of everyone who's supported her, I'm so proud of Madison; I'm bursting with pride in every crevice possible.
"I had no idea at all; she just set herself a mission. She quickly raised that. Then it snowballed to a thousand, then five thousand and here we are at thirty thousand. It's just all been amazing. It's evolved from a dream that Madison said she had and she's certainly had her dream."
