It was with great pleasure that we spotted JustGiving’s all-time top fundraiser (so far) in the Queen’s birthday honours on Saturday.
Major Phil Packer has been admitted as a Member of the military division of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
This year Phil has been a one-man-army of fundraising and you can read all about his manoeuvres, as well as his strategy to set up the British Inspiration Trust, on his site, http://www.philpacker.com.
April saw Phil returning to the London Marathon and setting up a unique new JustGiving page, this time for 26 different charities – one for each mile and each hour it took him to complete the Marathon. That page is still open and you can still donate to it here:
He’s also been experimenting with Twitter, and like every challenge this incredible individual sets himself, he’s succeeded! Follow him, here: http://twitter.com/philpacker.
