A flute player who has vowed to raise money for different causes throughout 2018 by busking will start in Sidmouth.

Nicola Mirams, who lives in Leicester, has set herself the challenge to help 12 causes around the country.

The 28-year-old will be in Market Square on December 30 and plans to spend 90 minutes raising money for Sidmouth Lifeboat from 10am. She said the town felt like a second home and was an ideal place to launch her fundraising mission.

Nicola and family have been visiting the town since she was born so she knew the important work Sidmouth’s independent lifeboat does. She hopes she will be able to collect £50 for the cause, adding: “I just wanted to do something meaningful to do with music. I have busked before, but instead of doing it for just myself I thought I would do it for charity.”

Nicola has so far planned performances up until March in Leicester, Cambridgeshire and Northumberland.
