A TAUNTON teenager is strumming away all day in Taunton on Saturday.

And you can't miss Charlie Hedger - he'll be dressed in colourful fancy dress as he busks with his guitar for charity.

Charlie, 15, who attends The Castle School, hopes his marathon playing will help raise awareness and funds for the BBC's Children in Need.

He said: "I've been a child all my life and in the last few years I have been lucky enough to have been able to do all sorts of amazing things with my music.

"I now want to help those that need it most - other children who aren't as fortunate, and it would be amazing if music could help do that."

Charlie, who was out busking in Exeter last weekend, has already raised well over £1,000 on JustGiving and is hoping the people of Taunton will show their generosity on Saturday.
