HERO paratrooper Ben Parkinson has been an Olympic torchbearer - now he’s signed up as an ambassador for Barnsley’s 2013 Rotary District Disability Games.
Ben, from Doncaster, is helping to promote the contest on Sunday, April 14 next year.
One of his first roles will be encouraging local businesses and individuals to provide sponsorship by speaking at a dinner being held at the Holiday Inn, Barnsley, by Rockley Rotary Club, from 6pm on Wednesday, September 19.
Ben, who is being accompanied by mum Diane Dernie, will be bringing along his Olympic torch.
Tickets for the dinner are available priced £15, which include a three-course meal.
