Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. I'm a 16 year old singer songwriter from Ipswich Suffolk  and I love fundraising through my music performances for local charities.  Since 2017 I've raised over £18,000. 

On Thursday 18th August 2022 I  will start my days challenge of busking singing a song at everyone of the 50 Hoot Owls in Ipswich collecting donations along the way. 

I'm hoping to raise £1000 for St Elizabeth hospice as they are an amazing charity and even though my abuelo(Spanish grandad) died from colon cancer in 2013 in Spain, I know had he been living in Ipswich,  he would have spent his final days at the hospice as it truly is a wonderful caring special place. 

There are 3 ways to help me reach my £1000 target

Donate via this link any amount you can

Text to donate..text hootsong to 70490 to donate £5

Donate on the day into our donation buckets along the way. We will publish on our social media Facebook and Instagram our planned route and you can watch live updates along the way too. 

If anyone wants to donate £5 for me to sing a song from my set list (check out the social media post about this option) then you can make your donation here and write "Song donation" next to your kind donation. 

If you're about in Ipswich om Thursday 18th August and fancy joining us on our fun busking trail you're very welcome. Would be lovely to meet you and have you join me round Ipswich.

I did this challenge back in 2019 with the Elmer's. It was a long fun day and raised over £500 for the hospice. This year I want to raise double that amount so I hope you can help me

 Thank you so much for reading my story and thank you for your love and support. 

Love Roma
