DRAGONS’ Den star Duncan Bannatyne will be taking to the skies with Doncaster’s Ben Parkinson on Sunday to try to raise £30,000 for the charity Pilgrim Bandits, to provide adventure training or confidence building trips for amputees.
Duncan invited Ben, aged 27, and some of the other wounded servicemen to his flat in Covent Garden, giving them a day out, and the chance to speak about the skydive event.
Former Miss UK Hayley Mac, a patron for the charity, was also there to show her continued support.
“Pilgrim Bandits is a fantastic charity that works with guys that have lost limbs or been burned,” said Duncan. “They work together and bond together. Everything they do is fantastic.”
Around 30 people will jump, and The Bannatyne Group is doubling money raised, to around £30,000.
