Ben's Challenge operates as a branch of Pilgrim Bandits to support injured servicemen and women and members of the emergency services.
Also on a local level we aim to support the military family of all ages, from cadets, through junior soldiers, right through to our oldest veterans, promoting the comradeship seen in the forces, and so desperately needed on retirement
Lance Bombardier Ben Parkinson MBE was seriously injured in Afghanistan serving with 7 Para RHA in September 2006. Ben is still the most severely injured soldier ever to survive.
Ben’s has set himself a series of challenges to raise money for the Pilgrim Bandits and various military charities. Ben has made a remarkable recovery from his injuries, far exceeding the expectations of his medical team. Ben would like to show that anything in life is possible with the right support and his wish is that all injured soldiers are given the same level of support that he has received.
