A disabled man has taken part in a charity walk to raise money for charity.

Phil Packer MBE walked four miles at Chatsworth House for the British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) to raise £15 million to build the BRIT Centre of Inspiration for young people facing adversity.

Phil suffered a severe spinal cord injury in 2008 and was told he would never walk again.

Walking eight to ten miles for him in the equivalent of completing a marathon.

He said: “This is about providing a physical legacy for our young people who face their darkest times and in a very special year including Her Majesty the Queen’s Jubilee Year and London 2012.”
