Pilgrim Bandits was established by a small group of Special Forces veterans in 2007 with the sole aim of using their unique training and experience to help and inspire wounded soldiers to live life to the full.
The mantra ‘Always a Little Further’ is core to our attitude, whether working with amputee men and women from the services directly or by utilising their experiences to inspire and encourage young people and children. Pilgrim Bandits don’t do sympathy, but offer the rewards of belonging to a team, encouragement, belief and the power of humour over pain!
Our primary aim is to help those in need directly, with no compromise. Soon, those who needed help become those that give it. How do we all do this? The only way we know how by pushing injured men and women into physically and mentally demanding situations that they would not have dreamed possible; kayaking extraordinary distances, climbing mountains, jumping from aircraft, running races, trekking across inhospitable terrain – and Always a little further. We push those that have already endured too much to go beyond endurance – to embrace life again and in so doing inspire others.
Some view Pilgrim Bandits as a Forces Charity but we are a Charitable Force, bringing support, help and adventure to injured personnel from all the UK Services.
