WAR hero Ben Parkinson performed the VIP opening of a Doncaster town centre store – and picked up a donation to his charity.

Ben, who suffered horrendous injuries including brain damage and the loss of both legs in Afghanistan, re-opened the revamped Wilkinson’s store in the Frenchgate Centre. While he was carrying out the job, he was also handed a £200 contribution to his Ben’s Challenge appeal, which helps service charities and the Doncaster Neuro Outreach Team.

Store manager Sarah Middleton said: “It was great that Ben came down to the store to help us reopen.”
