Makonnen is an autistic young person who has been affected by the plight of the children of Ukraine and he wanted to do something to help. Makonnen decided that he wanted to sleep in a tent for as long as it took to raise £500. He wanted to experience some of the discomfort that the Ukrainian children were experiencing and although sleeping in a tent in the cold weather took him out of his comfort zone he felt this was important.
Makonnen and his brother have been sleeping in a tent for 3 nights and have smashed their target of £500 and have decided to continue sleeping out to see if they can reach £1000.
