An 83-year-old accordion playing busker from Worthing has raised more than £15,000 for a children's hospice.
George Smewing began fundraising in 2007 and has played his accordion in the town centre since May 2010. He has now raised more than £15,000 for Chestnut Tree House in Sussex.
George used to play the accordion with his wife, entertaining residents in nursing homes across Worthing. Their audiences would give money to the duo, which they decided to donate to the hospice.
Sadly, George's wife developed dementia and was admitted to a nursing home in April 2009 after he was no longer able to care for her, leaving George at home on his own.

My neighbour suggested that, as I could still play the accordion, I should go busking in the town centre and donate what money I collected to Chestnut Tree House.
"Weather permitting, five or six days a week, I head down to the spot outside Marks and Spencer, and play for a few hours to entertain the crowds. This gives me a reason to get up in the morning and I enjoy it."
