A GROUP which runs forces- style exercise sessions in Doncaster has handed wounded war hero Ben Parkinson’s charity a boost.

Forces Fit Doncaster held a series of events to raise cash for Pilgrim Bandits, a charity which raises money for causes which benefit former and current service personnel, set up by Ben, from Bessacarr, and fellow troops.

Forces Fit staff and customers raised £780, which they presented to Ben at the Cheswold pub, Lakeside.

Ben lost both legs and suffered other injuries serving in Afghanistan, and has been described as the most seriously wounded British soldier to survive his injuries.
