Major Phil Packer

I burst into tears when I saw this brave man struggling to pull himself up a 3000ft mountain to raise money for Help for Heroes.
Major Phil Packer was seriously injured in a rocket attack in Basra, in February 2008, leaving him paraplegic. Despite losing the use of his legs he has completed the London marathon on crutches, rowed across the English Channel in fifteen hours and completed numerous other feats to raise money for injured servicemen.
He is quoted as saying ‘It is about making the most of a situation’. He is to be applauded.
