Phil Jones from Wrexham has committed more than 25 years of his life to help raise more than £5.5 million for charity.

Whilst working at Airbus he successfully led their charity programme, raising money for local and national charities.

But he’s also freely given his own time to support his community. He works tirelessly to promote local football in the Wrexham area, supports the local hospice and is always prepared to offer a helping hand to anyone who needs it.

In the past he's organised trips for children from a local children’s home and mentored homeless young people.

Phil is a fan of the Pride of Britain Awards, and is amazed that he’s been considered for an award this year.
