Ben Parkinson

Ben Parkinson MBE is well-known as the most injured soldier to have survived the Afghanistan-Iraq conflict. Fifteen years on from sustaining extensive injuries after his Land Rover hit a mine in Helmand Province, he is still recovering from them, and yet has managed incredible treks around the world raising amazing amounts of money for charity. His efforts were recognised in 2015 with an MBE; he was also awarded the ‘Overcoming Adversity’ award at the Millies in 2008 and carried the Olympic Torch back in 2012. He lives in Doncaster with his family, spending hours in his beloved home gym each day and going on daring and dangerous expeditions with the Pilgrim Bandits, a charity for injured soldiers.
