A popular Weston man who entertains shoppers with his musical skills has raised more than £1,000 for charity this year.

Daniel Hardinge, of Grove Park Road, is a talented pianist and keyboard player – and is regularly seen performing for passers-by on the High Street.

The 74-year-old has been collecting money for various charities over the years.

This year he has turned his attention to war veterans charity Help For Heroes, raising an impressive £1,550 for the cause – which offers support to people in the armed forces.

He said: “I used to raise money for the British Heart Foundation, Bristol Children’s Hospital and Cancer Research – but I recently started raising money for Help For Heroes.

“Since 1979 I have collected in the region of £200,000 for charity, which makes me very proud.

“It’s nice to help people who can’t always help themselves.”
