The Cornish schoolgirl who has raised more than 30 thousand pounds for sick children reveals a new target.

Madison Glinski has featured in a Hollywood movie after busking in St Ives and Truro.

Now she is pledging to head for 50 thousand for the Duchy's children's hospice Little Harbour.

But the 10 year old admits she needs to concentrate on her schoolwork until Easter: "Wow - what a year. Thank-you everyone for keeping me rolling and travelling with me on a journey that I will never forget. Madison's mission will never be completed as I will always have more to give.

"I need to concentrate on my schoolwork, says mum, and be 10, whatever that means, but I will be back. Easter 2015 watch out; I've made a new target of fifty thousand pounds.

You can watch more from the New Year video she has posted on Facebook here.
