Max Woosey camping out in his tent in his garden in Braunton, Devon. See SWNS story SWPLtent; A young boy has smashed his £50k target for a hospice by spending more than 200 days sleeping in a tent given to him by a dying friend. Max Woosey, 10, was inspired after his friend and neighbour, Rick, gave him a tent shortly before he died in February. Rick, who was 74, told Max to have an adventure with it, so he decided to camp out in the garden of his family home in Braunton, Devon. Max has already stayed in the tent for more than 200 days - and by doing so has now raised £58,000 and counting for North Devon Hospice. He said: "It feels amazing, it's unbelievable really. I've raised around £70,000 including Gift Aid. "It will be used for equipment and stuff like that to help other people and people who really need it." Max wanted to raise money for the hospice as they cared for Rick, who died from cancer, and his wife, Sue, in their final days. The schoolboy spent nearly all his time in the tent, only coming inside for home-schooling lessons, to have dinner, or to wash. He added: "They helped my friends Rick and Sue who unfortunately passed away, but they don't just help the people who are ill they help the family and friends get through it as well.
