A ten year old British violinist has raised more than £32,000 (US $50,000) for a local Children's Hospital, over an eight month period, by performing in the street.

Madison Glinski, who is currently completing her Grade 4 violin exam, set the original goal of £500 for the Little Harbour Hospice, in Cornwall but has since amassed more than 60 times that figure.

'Madison is very caring. She made a New Year's resolution to help poorly children and decided to try and raise £500 for the Children's Hospice South West,” Madison's mother Terrasa has told the UK's Daily Mail, “... she thought that was all she would be able to raise but so many people have donated it just grew and grew.”
