Lodge of Meridian support The Pilgrim Bandits

A great example of Dorset Freemasons supporting the wider community! We were delighted to get this great picture of Charlie Byrne of The Lodge of Meridian presenting a cheque for £250 to Aileen Edwards, a representative of Pilgrim Bandits.

The Pilgrim Bandits Charity was established by a small group of Special Forces veterans in 2007 with the 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 the charity's 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' primary aim is to help those in need directly; pushing injured men and women into physically and mentally demanding situations that they would not have dreamed possible.

By kayaking extraordinary distances, climbing mountains, jumping from aircraft, running races, trekking across inhospitable terrain, self confidence is restored and self-belief instilled. Pilgrim Bandits pushes those that have already endured so much to go beyond endurance, to embrace life again and in so doing inspire others.
