The Pilgrim Bandits

Our chosen charity is The Pilgrim Bandits. The PB is a charity to help injured service personnel. The patron of the charity in Ben Parkinson, an ex-serviceman and an inspiration to all. The PB is one of the very few charities that do not "skim" off the charity for their own gains, therefore more money goes to the people who really need it and not to highly paid professional charity managers.

All posts on this page are selected to display the fantastic qualities of the Pilgrim Bandits.
