Ben Parkinson walks a mile for charity

Britain's most badly injured surviving soldier, Ben Parkinson, has walked a mile on prosthetic limbs to raise money for charity.

Ben joined fundraisers for the final part of a fortnight long events programme, that has seen Paul Bristow and his team climb Snowdon, do three long distance bike rides, a distance swim, a parachute jump and a half marathon. The money will go towards Ben's charity the Pilgrim Bandits and to children's charity Scottish Little Soldiers.
