It might be worth your while to paying more attention to the buskers you pass on your way to work: the guy with a guitar you ignore might be a more famous face than you think. From 6-13 September, celebrity buskers will be performing around the UK, including in London, to support Cancer Research UK. Suggs of Madness and Sandi Thom are amongst the artists that have signed up for Busking Cancer in London. But the fundraising efforts aren't limited to those with established musical careers; those of you with musical talent can sign up to busk for the cause as well. Or, if you're a bit too shy to sing in the streets, you can donate directly through the website.
Now in its second year, Busking Cancer originally launched under the London Eye. Watch that space!
