Max has been camping in his garden every night in all weather conditions to raise money for a hospice.
This Morning viewers were left stunned by an 'amazing' 11-year-old boy after he revealed he's raised over £130,000 for charity by camping in his garden.
Max Woosey has been sleeping in the tent since March 28 2020, and has raised £131,682 for North Devon Hospice.
He decided to aim to camp for a year to raise the funds, after being given the tent by his neighbour Rick, who sadly died after being cared for at the Hospice.
However, during an appearance on This Morning today, he revealed that he plans go go on for longer.
While chatting to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield alongside his mother Rachael, he said: "Rick loved his camping outdoors, the only time i saw him inside was when he was cooking or watching rugby.
"He gave me a tent before he died and said 'I want you to have an adventure'.
"The North Devon Hospice took care of him, since Covid they lost some of their fund raising. So I thought: how can I keep my promise and help them?"
Max started camping in the summer months, and he opened up about his struggles with dealing with the winter weather.
He said: "There has been ice on the tent, thick ice, it’s starting to get quite muddy now, because it's just freezing."
He also revealed that he'd 'battled red ants and been chased around the garden by pheasants', but that he's fine 'as long as he has snacks and his Beano'.
When asked whether he will continue his camping, he said: "I’m not stopping at a year now, i’m going past a year", adding that he didn't know when he would stop.
Many viewers took to Twitter to praise Max, with one writing: "What an amazing young man Max is".
Another added: "I think Max is great. Most 11yo's will be stuck indoors on a console. What a breath of fresh air he is".
