An amazing, inspirational young man. Has overcome severe learning difficulties, acute dyspraxia and being unable to speak to live life to the full: Keen athlete - regularly takes part in Special Olympics, has won numerous medals. Trains each week in the gym, swims in galas and competitions and attends a fitness club. Caring and compassionate - moved by the plight of orphans in Romania to organise a sponsored swim raising £1,000 for the Firm Foundation charity`s hospital in Brasov. Community minded - a section helper in the 1st Braughing cubs since 2006, maracas player in the Scout Band and valued member of his local church. Great fun - loves gang shows and military tattoos, authority on the Eurovision Song Contest and collects full-sized national flags. Philip would be so proud to carry the torch and would be backed by locals, church members, Cubs, Scouts and colleagues from Special Olympics, who all support him.
