Major Phil Packer Completes London Marathon

Major Phil Packer was injured in an incident following a rocket attack in Basra on 19 Feb 08. Sadly, as a result of the accident he lost the use of his legs and is now a paraplegic with what are classed as catastrophic injuries. He was originally told he would never walk again, however there have been positive improvements and he has just completed walking the Flora London Marathon (on crutches) over a two week period to raise money for Help for Heroes!

This is a remarkable achievement by a remarkable man. If you would like to find out more or would like to sponser Phil then please visit the sites below:
