She had originally planned to busk in March but had to cancel due to bad weather.

Sessions further afield include Bristol, Crewe and Leicester.

Nicola, 29, from Leicester, said: “I’ve played the flute for over 20 years. I’ve always enjoyed sharing my music and helping people and thought this challenge was a perfect way to do both.

“I am looking forward to returning to Seahouses to support the Seahouses Development Trust – hopefully in the sunshine!”

The busking challenge started in December 2017 in Sidmouth, Devon, where she raised over £150 for Sidmouth Lifeboat. She has now raised over £1,000 for the various charities she has supported. The challenge originated after Nicola was inspired after listening to a podcast, where the guest described how they helped their local community.
