Max's Story

12-year-old Max began camping in his garden on the 29th March 2020 to raise money for the North Devon Hospice. Shortly before he passed away, family friend Rick was cared for by the hospice and Rick gifted his tent to Max, urging him to have an adventure with it. What started as a challenge to camp outside for a few days has snowballed into a 2-year-long epic journey.

Max has battled howling winds, battering rains and lost a number of tents to stormy weather. Despite the often-times difficult weather conditions, Max has remained steadfastly outside and all to support the hospice.

Camping out for so long has given Max a unique perspective on the impact isolation has had on so many children and adults around the world. Whilst the steps taken to keep people safe have been necessary, Max has become a symbol of togetherness even though we’re apart. Although we may not be able to see friends, family and loved ones around the world, we can all be part of something together by raising funds to support charities doing vital work to help others.
