Our Mantra

The mantra ‘Always a Little Further’ is core to the charity’s attitude, whether working with injured men and women from the Military or Emergency 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.

Bandits’ primary aim is to help those in need directly, with no compromise. Soon, those who needed help become those that give it. By pushing injured men and women into physically and mentally demanding situations that they would not have dreamed possible; kayaking extraordinary distances, jumping from aircraft, running races, trekking across inhospitable terrain, self confidence is restored and self-belief instilled – Always a Little Further. Pilgrim Bandits pushes those that have already endured so much to go beyond endurance – to embrace life again and in so doing inspire others.

Bens Challenge

Operates as a branch of Pilgrimbandits 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

Curtis Palmer Programme

Pilgrim Bandits recognises the dangerous and often stressful work carried out by the Policing Family. We understand that PTSD, stress and mental health related issues have increased within the Police and Emergency services. Officers nationwide are also daily suffering injuries, some life changing.

So what is the Curtis Palmer Programme:

In brief the CPP is taking our injured servicemen who having experienced similar trauma and come through that trauma pairing them with injured emergency members so that they can mentor and motivate them through our challenges back into the work place.
