Young Max Woosey, 12, from Braunton, southwest England, is decorated for raising money for his town hospital by sleeping outside in a tent for over a year and half.

The feat is impressive, it moved England and over the months made this boy a true model of determination.

The two were very close, so the young boy followed his friend’s hospitalization, then his return home, to leave in peace, in his bed, a wish that the dedication of the caregivers made it possible to achieve. And it is precisely to thank the hospital staff that Max embarked on a fundraiser. A collection which took a rather special form since before dying, his neighbor gave him his old camping tent: “He made me promise to have adventures with her, he explains, so this is what i do. “

At the end of March 2020, while England is surprised by the coronavirus, Max starts camping in his garden, he created an account on Twitter, another on Instagram, and open his pot, which initially goes unnoticed. On social networks, he tells about the sound of the wind, the rain, the humidity, the visits of slugs, spiders, and even invasions of red ants. His parents try to get him in but nothing helps, Max stays outside.
