Join Phil Packer for last leg of BRIT2012 Challenge

Phil Packer completes the final leg of his BRIT2012 Challenge to walk 2012 miles across the UK.

Phil Packer, founder of the British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) and supporter of Youth Sport Trust will conduct his final walk as part of the BRIT2012 Challenge on Tuesday 18 December 2012 in London.

This final walk in London's Canary Wharf is the culmination of a full year's challenge to walk 2012 miles across every county and unitary authority across the UK, highlands and islands.

Throughout the BRIT2012 Challenge, Phil has spent time with young people, both able bodied and with disabilities, that have continued to inspire Phil to push forward with his aspiration to build a centre that caters for young people of every background and disability.

On Tuesday 18 December, Phil will be joined by young people, BRIT mentors and charity volunteers as Phil completes the journey.

Phil extends an invitation to young people, schools and businesses to join him on this last leg of the journey. Please turn up at Canary Wharf to join the walk or email Clare Vaux to arrange.
