Also known as “The boy in the tent”, Max Woosey, raised over £750,000 for North Devon Hospice by camping in his garden for the past 3 years. His impressive achievement has earned him an invitation to the King’s Coronation next month, alongside other distinguished BEM (British Empire Medal) recipients and community and charity representatives. His achievements and contributions to his local community are truly exceptional and inspiring. The BEM is a prestigious award presented to individuals who have made significant contributions to their local communities. Many of those attending the coronation have been recognised for their efforts in providing essential services and support to their communities during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

We would like to wish him the best of luck on the day of the coronation and we are thrilled that his hard work and dedication to the community are being recognised on such a prestigious occasion. Max’s commitment to helping others and his fundraising efforts are a testament to his character and values, and he serves as a role model for others in his community and beyond. His accomplishments demonstrate the positive impact that one person can have on their community. As a school, we couldn’t be prouder to have Max as one of our students. We wholeheartedly wish him all the luck and excitement as he prepares for the coronation day!
