Charity night for disabled

Have your say

The Matrix Mixed Martial Arts Centre in Kirk Sandall is hosting a charity race night on Saturday to raise money for the rehabilitation of disabled people.

Since The Star featured wounded war hero Ben Parkinson working out at Paul Hallam’s gym he has been inundated with enquiries from other injured people and he is hoping to raise £5,000 to buy specialist equipment.

“We want to start getting other severely disabled people to benefit as much as Ben has since he started coming here and getting our one-to-one physiotherapy.

“Since the publicity we’ve had enquiries from eight other people and I’ve invited them down to see how we work with Ben.”

The Race Night starts at 7pm at the Beverley Inn, Edenthorpe.
