A Calverton lad is planning to sleep outside for over a month to raise much-needed cash for homeless veterans.

Joshua Partridge, 11, has already started sleeping in a tent in his garden to bring in funds for the annual Great Tommy Sleepout appeal

The Colonel Frank Seely pupil took part in the event last year and is hoping to smash his record for nights under the stars in 2022.

Proud mum Anne-Marie Partridge said: “Joshua took part in the sleepout last year and decided that one night outside wasn’t enough, so he set himself a challenge to do as many nights and raise money as much as he could.

“He ended his sleepout after 56 nights and raised £3874 for the charity.

“He was highest single fundraiser and only a group of army cadets beat his fundraising total.

“He is now hoping to smash his target of nights spent outside and is already on night four.”
