I’m Max, aged 11 years, from Devon, UK. Since the end of March 2020 I’ve been sleeping outside every night in a tent, raising money for the North Devon Hospice. They were amazing in looking after our family friend Rick, enabling him to pass peacefully at home, with those closest to him.
To mark the one-year anniversary please join me for Max’s Big Camp Out on Saturday 27th March 2021.
I’d like to raise awareness that many children across the globe have found lockdown and Covid tough to cope with. At the beginning of my camp out I was focussed on my friend Rick, but as I reach one year in the tent, and it’s coincided with Covid, I really understand what it’s like to be isolated from your friends. We all understand why it’s been necessary, but some young people have found it really tough going.
