Boy, 11, who has slept in a tent for a year for charity set to smash £500,000 target


A HARDY 11-year-old who has slept in a tent for a year for charity was set to smash the £500,000 barrier last night.

Tough Max Woosey says he is not yet ready to go back indoors and wants “another adventure” to get to the £1million fundraising mark.

He has camped in his garden through snow and storms every night since March 28, 2020.

On Saturday night he was joined by hundreds of other youngsters globally for a Big Camp Out to mark the year.

Max said: “I am not ready to come in yet. But I would like to get out of the garden and have a proper adventure when we are allowed to.”

He started the stunt aiming to raise £100 for the North Devon Hospice, which has helped look after an unwell neighbour.

Now proud mum Rachael, 48, from Braunton, Devon, said Max might find it hard moving back inside.

She said: “He is a Lego nut and it is all over his bedroom. I’m not sure there is room for him in there too.”

Hospice boss Steve Roberts said: “Everyone is blown away by what this inspiring 11-year-old is doing. Every pound is vital.”

Last night Max had raised £489,000 — more with Gift Aid and the other youngsters’ efforts.
