Over the many years I knew Peter,  I was always struck by his deep compassion for the young people helped by my Trust. As The Pride of Britain became an established event, celebrating the great people of this country, Peter always insisted one of my Trust’s young people was included. He never shied away from telling the difficult stories of young people who had struggled with drugs, homelessness, imprisonment or mental health issues and managed to turn their lives around. The positive impact of telling their stories will be a significant part of his legacy. My deepest and heartfelt condolences go to his family and friends.
