Have your say

BEN Parkinson will be special guest at two events - appearing at a fundraising barbecue and then at a rotary club dinner.

The injured paratrooper will be at the barbecue at The George and Dragon pub, Wentworth, on Sunday, June 10, from 3pm.

The event is being held to raise money for Pilgrim Bandits and Troop Aid, charities which support service personnel, both of which Ben is supporting.

Later this month he is to attend Barnsley Rotary Club’s meal at Ardsley House Hotel on Tuesday, June 19, from 6pm, with mum Diane Dernie and stepdad Andrew Dernie.

Tickets are on sale for the rotary club dinner at a cost of £11.

Barnsley Rotary Club is also holding its 14th annual Classic Car Rally at Cannon Hall on July 29, from 10am with hundreds of vehicles set to be on display plus family events, rides and stalls.
