‘Phil was the guest speaker at our annual conference this year. He talked very openly from the heart about his personal journey from his early home life, through joining the Army to ‘making his Mum proud’, to how he coped with the enormous challenges facing him following his appalling injuries in Iraq. His courage and determination were evident as was his humility and his genuine desire to help improve the lives of young people facing similar difficulties. He was truly inspirational and made us all realise that nothing is beyond our capabilities as long as we have all have the right attitude and persevere’.
Marian Holmes, Chief Executive, CSSC Sports & Leisure
