23 year old Kitty Pandya from Weybridge came onto my breakfast show today to talk about her Big Busk.

Kitty spent a weekend busking with her guitar across the UK raising money for the Alzheimers Society, relying  on the goodwill of others to get from city to city.

This is a cause close to Kitty's heart  as her own Nanna has been diagnosed with Dementia.

If you wish to support Kitty in her fundraising go to her just giving page:
